The Power of Culture in Sustainable Development

24 – 27 November 2013, Bali, Indonesia

In 2011 the UN General Assembly called for a more visible and effective integration and mainstreaming of culture into development policies and strategies at all levels.

The World Culture Forum  is envisaged as an arena for sharing experiences, strengthening meaningful relationships, appreciating cultural diversity and fostering policies that enable local and national cultural communities to flourish in an age of unprecedented globalisation.


The World Culture Forum convened by the President of Indonesia in Bali from 24 to 27 November 2013 aspires to recommend:

  • New pathways for locating culture as an integral part of sustainable development
  • Ethical frameworks for ensuring community engagement and stakeholder benefits
  • New participatory models for promoting cultural democracy
  • Draft frameworks for evidence based measuring of sustainable cultural development
  • Strategic inputs into the framing of Sustainable Development Goals in the Post-2015 Development Agenda

Leading international agencies and critical thinkers will engage the participants in six themed symposia that will form the overarching framework of the World Culture Forum 2013:

  • Holistic Approaches to Culture in Development
  • Civil Society and Cultural Democracy
  • Creativity and Cultural Economics
  • Culture in Environmental Sustainability
  • Sustainable Urban Development
  • Inter-Faith Dialogue and Community Building
