Culture as a driver of social development
The conference is aimed at promoting the final results of the CDIS process completed in Montenegro last year. This occasion will allow to further promote the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. The event will be inaugurated by the Minister of Culture of Montenegro and the Director of the UNESCO Regional Bureau for Science and culture in Europe.
The UNESCO Culture for Development Indicators (CDIS) is a pioneering research and advocacy initiative that aims to establish a set of indicators highlighting how culture contributes to development at the national level fostering economic growth, and helping individuals and communities to expand their life choices and adapt to change. This project contributes to the implementation of Article 13 (Integration of Culture in Sustainable Development) of the Convention for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions.
