Quel avenir et quelles missions pour l'UNESCO à horizon 2020?
The contribution of culture to sustainable development was also the central theme of the lecture recently organized by the French non-profit association GERM (Group for Studies and Research on Globalisations) and held by Biserka Cvjeticanin (Culturelink/IRMO) under the title Quel avenir et quelles missions pour l'UNESCO à horizon 2020? (Toulouse, France, 27 March 2013). The specific role of culture in development processes is that it transcends the sectorial divisions and the very sectorial approach, facilitating communication between various realms/categories of human creativity, as well as between different societies, countries, groups and individuals. The interdependence of cultures as developmental interdependence represents a pluralism of values and relations between cultures.
