The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development marks a substantial step forward for sustainable development in many fields, including culture. An explicit recognition is given to the fundamental role that heritage and culture play in human development and serve as an enabler and a driver of Sustainable Development. The UNESCO recognizes that culture has a major impact on reducing poverty and contributes to a development, which is primarily human, inclusive and fair. Similarly, the ILO acknowledges the potential of cultural activities to provide significant business and employment opportunities and generate opportunities for decent work for men and women around the world.
