The ECBN with its Director Bernd Fesel proudly announces that it will participate in the activities organised by Nesta’s Policy& Evidence Center (PEC) to promote A Global Agenda for the Cultural and Creative Industries.

It  is the PEC’s contribution to the United Nations 2021 International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. It was created in response to an invitation made by the UN General Assembly to the international community and was written in partnership with the British Council. The Global Agenda was written alongside the PEC International Council, and sets out 11 key actions for international creative industries and governments worldwide to support the growth of creative industries and help them to tackle some of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.

This is the first time that an international group representing the global creative industries has come together with these goals in mind. It represents the culmination of a two-year coordinated discussion spanning more than 18 countries. The Global Agendawas launched at the World Conference on Creative Economy held in Dubai.
