Culture and Climate takes its place at the 2021 G20 meeting
Cultural heritage was recognised for the first time at this year’s G20 summit, the forum for international economic cooperation among the world’s largest economies. Hosted in Italy, this year’s forum focuses on the pillars People, Planet and Prosperity, and introduced two groundbreaking webinars in April around cultural heritage and climate. Through these sessions, the Climate Heritage Network and the Italian Ministry of Culture curated submissions for a declaration from G20 culture ministers to summit leaders.
