'I believe that culture is both a driver and enabler of sustainable development and that the explicit inclusion of targets and indicators for culture in the Sustainable Development Goals will enable transformative change. Will you join me?'
Julie is supporting the culture2015goal which is an online declaration to show support for culture as an enabler of sustainable development.
Global expenditure on development over the next 15 years will be defined by the final goal document to be agreed by UN Member States in coming months. If culture is not mentioned, it will be extremely difficult for countries to elaborate policies and provide funds for projects that rely on culture's role as a driver and an enabler of sustainable development.
Please show your support by visiting culture2015goal.net/ to find out more and sign the declaration and please tweet using #culture2015goal
