The thirty iberoamerican cities for culture support Agenda 21--the theme of the first Forum dialogue

During its plenary meeting in Barcelona yesterday, Interlocal—the network of Iberoamerican Cities for Culture—agreed to support Agenda 21 for Culture, the first Forum Dialogue, which is being held as part of Interaction 2004.

This proposal is one of the themes to be debated during the first Forum Dialogue, in which over 70 speakers from across the globe will participate today and tomorrow at the Forum Convention Center. Agenda 21 for Culture, which considers diversity to be humanity’s primary heritage, is expected to be passed at the fourth Forum of Local Authorities for Social Inclusion.

Over fifty cultural authorities from thirty cities of fourteen Iberoamerican countries participated in Interlocal’s plenary meeting, which was held by Barcelona’s Diputació (county council) and the Organization of Iberoamerican States (OEI). Participants also agreed to expand the network to include additional town councils.

The goal is to promote cultural policies according to local development. Moreover, it was decided that the second Interlocal Forum, which will take place in the second half of 2005, will be held in Buenos Aires. In addition, several projects to promote awareness of cultural matters were approved.
