PROTECT PATROMONIO AND PROMOTE CREATIVITY
In the interconnected world in which we live, it is easy to see that culture has the power to transform societies.Its diverse manifestations, ranging from the most precious historical monuments and museums to traditional rites and contemporary art, enrich our day to day in multiple ways.The heritage is a sign of identity and favors the cohesion of communities that do not assimilate rapid changes or that suffer the impact of the economic crisis.Creativity contributes to the building of open, inclusive and pluralistic societies.Heritage and creativity contribute to the building of dynamic, innovative and prosperous knowledge societies.
UNESCO is convinced that no progress can be sustained if it does not have a strong cultural component.In fact, sustainable, inclusive and equitable outcomes will only be achieved by addressing the issue of development by giving priority to the human being and based on mutual respect and dialogue between different communities.However, culture has been excluded from discussions on development until recently.
To ensure that development plans and strategies take culture into account, UNESCO has adopted a three-pronged tactic: In addition to leading the defense of culture and development globally, UNESCO also collaborates with the international community to establish Agreements and regulatory frameworks and carries out activities in the field to assist governments and local actors in heritage conservation, the strengthening of creative industries and the promotion of cultural pluralism.
UNESCO's renowned cultural conventions constitute a unique global platform for international cooperation and establish a comprehensive cultural governance body based on human rights and common values.These international treaties seek to protect and conserve the cultural and natural heritage of our planet such as archaeological sites, underwater heritage, museum funds, intangible heritage - oral traditions, for example - and other forms of heritage.They also promote creativity, innovation and the emergence of dynamic cultural sectors.
