On next 23 January 2024 (between 12:00-15:00 GMT), the #Culture2030Goal campaign will organise the webinar "Looking ahead: Culture in Sustainable Development in 2024 and Beyond" with the aim of sharing the background and the achievements of the campaign and opening a conversation with key partners and all global cultural networks.

The workshop will gather partners to think together about the next steps, including the UN Summit of the Future (September 2024), the road towards “a Culture Goal” as well as the ongoing efforts to include “culture in delivering across the SDGs”.

Participants will receive important updates on the place of culture in sustainable development and global development agendas, and have the opportunity to share their views and shape the upcoming work, hear from others about this key dimension of sustainable development.
