Izmir has become a global actor in the field of local cultural policies. The summit will be inaugurated with an online session on 10 June 2021 and will later be held with face-to-face and online sessions on 9-11 September 2021.

The Culture Summit is organized by the world organisation of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG) to guarantee the place of culture in global debates on sustainable development and to encourage networking, peer-learning and the sharing of good practices between cities and local governments from across the world. Held in Bilbao, Jeju and Buenos Aires in previous years, the 4th UCLG Culture Summit will be hosted by Izmir Metropolitan Municipality on 9-11 September 2021 in Izmir, a global actor of local cultural policies.


The summit has two main goals;

First, the summit will reinforce the messages about the role which culture plays in sustainable development at the local level with concrete examples of policies, programs and projects.

Second, the Summit will give visibility to international debates on culture, cities and sustainable development, which are shaped by the UN 2030 Agenda and the SDGs (we are already in the Decade of Action), the New Urban Agenda (which celebrates its 5th anniversary in 2021) and the UCLG acquis on the place of culture in local development.

The summit will last 3 days where local government delegations, national government representatives, international organizations and non-governmental organizations from across the globe will participate.
