World Culture Forum 2016

The World Culture Forum (WCF) 2016 will include a series of keynote addresses, symposiums on culture-related issues, a cultural carnival, and a parallel international youth forum on culture.

The platform aims to create a space to discuss, debate, and contest established ideas and approaches in order to recommend new pathways for locating culture as an integral part of sustainable development, ethical frameworks for ensuring community engagement and stakeholder benefits, mutual understanding and respect among different cultures, qualitative and quantitative cultural indicators for measuring sustainable development, and the building of a harmonious “glocal” society.
