UNESCO is curating a virtual exhibition to showcase a range of multimedia materials from around the world related to the themes of urban inclusion and diversity. The exhibition will be shown on screens at Habitat III, United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development, as well as online, highlighting resources, publications and successful actions and initiatives implemented by city-level actors – including notably by member cities of the Coalition of Inclusive and Sustainable Cities – ICCAR – in the promotion of urban inclusion and cultural diversity, in addition to creative materials, displaying artworks and cultural products including video and photographic content, mobilising platforms including the Creative Cities Network.

• The exhibition will raise awareness of city-level initiatives around the world promoting inclusive urban development free from all forms of discrimination, which are cross-cutting themes recognized as essential to sustainable urban development in the New Urban Agenda.

• The exhibition will also promote the exchange and cross-fertilisation of innovative approaches to promoting inclusive and sustainable development in cities.
