UNESCO’s 2005 Convention and Cities of Music

UNESCO recognizes that culture can no longer be just a by-product of development, but rather the mainspring for sustainable development. The Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions is a legally-binding international agreement that ensures artists, cultural professionals, practitioners and citizens worldwide can create, produce, disseminate and enjoy a broad range of cultural goods, services and activities, including their own.

UNESCO’s City of Music program is part of the wider Creative Cities Network that strives to promote cooperation with and among cities that have identified creativity as a strategic factor for sustainable urban development.
