The International Music Council and its fellow members of the Culture2030Goal campaign are pleased to announce a virtual Side Event as part of the official programme of the UN High-Level Political Forum (HLPF), on 13 July 2020, 12:00-13:30 NYC time. The speakers will tentatively include members of the Culture 2030 Goal campaign, UN agencies, Government representatives and parliamentarians.

This event comes in timely after the #CultureCovid19 Statement, launched with a webinar on 21 May 2020 and available in several languages on the #Culture2030Goal website, has been officially endorsed by H.E. Mr. Tijjani Muhammed-Bande, President of the 74th Session of the United Nations General Assembly.

This endorsement, at the highest level of the global policy community, is a crucial milestone for the campaign to mainstream culture- with all its manifestations including cultural heritage, diversity, rights, arts, music, libraries, knowledge, and local government cultural policies- in the UN 2030 Agenda and the sustainable development debates. We hope it will inspire other stakeholders to follow the UNPGA's example. The statement is open to endorsements from individuals and organizations; please feel free to endorse through this link, and spread the word widely among your communities..!

We hope you will join us for the Side Event on July 13! Register here
