The 2020 Rome Charter

The UCLG Culture Committee and the City Council of Rome have been working together to elaborate "The 2020 Rome Charter. The Right to Participate Fully and Freely in Cultural Life is vital to our Cities and Communities", as a contribution to the global conversation on culture and development.

The Charter is the result of a large consultation process that included several online expert meetings and seminars with key cities, organisations, experts and networks, organised between April and October 2020, finalizing with the Rome Hybrid Conference held in Roma from 1 to 3 October 2020, where the Charter was officially presented. The photos of the conference have been collected in a dedicated photo gallery, and the #2020RomeCharter hashtag will allow you to read about the event in social media.

The Charter was first launched on 29 May 2020, on the occasion of the Executive Bureau of UCLG and it will be submitted for approval during the World Council of UCLG on next 9-13 November 2020.


The Charter is available in English, French, Spanish, Italian, Croatian, Russian and Turkish:
