The UCLG Culture Summit is the main meeting point at global level of cities, local governments and other stakeholders that are committed to the effective implementation of policies and programmes on culture and sustainability.

Since 2015, UCLG has convened three editions of the UCLG Culture Summit, which were respectively hosted by the City of Bilbao (Basque Country, Spain, March 2015), the Jeju Self-Governing Special Province (Jeju-do, Republic of Korea, May 2017), and the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires (Argentina, April 2019). Following the success of the three first Culture Summit of UCLG, and considering the growing importance of culture in the framework of sustainable cities, the Executive Bureau of UCLG has decided to convene a 4th UCLG Culture Summit in 2021.

The 4th Culture Summit will be held in Izmir on next 9-11 September 2021, under the title “Culture: Shaping the Future”.

A virtual launch of the Summit was organised online and in Izmir on last 10 June 2021, from 14h30-16h30 CEST. A detailed article on the session is also available should you wish to know more.

Then, the 4th UCLG Culture Summit was organised in september 2021. The report of the Summit will be available soon. You can also read the detailed article which emphisizes the main highlights of the event, as well as the flickr albums of the first and second days of the Summit.
