RMCBU Activities

July 21, 2014 Eastern Partnership Culture Programme holds its 2nd Culture Policy Exchange Workshop of 2014 in Baku to promote policy reforms in the EaP region and discuss cultural strategies of Azerbaijan Today, 21st of July 2014, the Regional Monitoring and Capacity Building Unit (RMCBU) of the Eastern Partnership Culture Programme in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Tourism of the Republic of Azerbaijan holds in Baku the Open Session ‘Cultural Strategy of Azerbaijan: How Strategy Shapes Cultural Projects, how Projects Impact on Strategy’ (with a focus on Cultural Industries, Cultural Tourism and Digitalisation of Culture).
This event is a part of the Cultural Policy Exchange Workshop ‘THE STRATEGY BEHIND THE PRACTICE: Approaches to Drive Change for a Better Future’ organized in Baku by the RMCBU as a part of its Workshop Cycle 2014 for all six EaP countries (Azerbaijan, Armenia, Belarus,, Georgia, Moldova, and Ukraine) organised with a common goal to promote policy reforms and modernization at government level, strengthen ‘professionalization’ of the culture sector in the partner countries and contribute to information, experience and best practice exchange among culture actors in the EaP region and between the region and the EU. The Workshop Cycle 2014 aims at deepening of strategic thinking and approaches to strategy and policy development, including elaboration of implementation plans for strategies and policies. It is also an effort to identify possible Eastern Partnership-wide joint strategies based on common needs of the EaP region and to promote public-private partnership between national stakeholders in the EaP countries.

June 12, 2014 Join the global campaign calling for culture to be included in the post-2015 Sustainable Development Goals Declaration on the Inclusion of Culture in the Sustainable Development Goals, 1 May 2014
www.culture2015goal.net
Call on governments and policymakers defining the post-2015 UN Development Agenda to ensure that targets and indicators on culture be included as part of the Sustainable Development Goals
Why is this important?
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. ‘Culture’ was completely absent from the Millennium Development Goals document. Don’t let this happen again.
Why is this urgent?
The UN’s Open Working Group (OWG) on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) http://sustainabledevelopment.un.org/owg.html holds working sessions to draft a list of goals, targets and indicators. Culture is again almost absent. The OWG’s draft of the SDGs will be finalized in July 2014.
Please act now and help raise awareness of the UN’s Member States of culture’s vital contribution to sustainable development.
