UNESCO Creative Cities Network mission statement

The aim of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, established in 2004, is to strengthen cooperation with and between cities that recognize creativity as a strategic factor of sustainable development in its economic, social, cultural and ecological aspects.

By joining the Network, cities recognize their commitment to sharing good practice, developing partnerships that promote creativity and cultural industries, increasing participation in cultural life and integrating culture into urban development plans.

Cities are committed to supporting United Nations programmes, in particular the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
