In 2020, we entered the last Decade of Action to implement the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As the target date for achieving the SDGs draws closer, UNESCO is engaging its Member States and the international community in a renewed reflection on cultural policies to address global challenges and set immediate and future priorities to shape a more robust and resilient cultural sector fully anchored in sustainable development prospects.
In preparation for the UNESCO World Conference on Cultural Policies and Sustainable Development — Mondiacult 2022, Creative Commons participated in the ResiliArt x Mondiacult initiative and hosted a webinar on Wednesday, 23 February 2022 to explore how open access to cultural heritage materials encourages artists to discover, share, and remix such materials.
Our ResiliArt x Mondiacult webinar brought together artists and heritage professionals to share their vision for better sharing of cultural heritage to support contemporary creativity in the digital space. The panelists discussed, among other things, the power of open licensing and the importance of Creative Commons infrastructure as a catalyst for the dissemination and revitalization of culture.
