The aim is to shape a stronger and more sustainable cultural sector, fully based on the perspectives of sustainable development, as well as the promotion of solidarity, peace and security, in accordance with the vision laid down in the report of the UN Secretary General (September, 2021), which refers to cultural resources as a global common heritage.
