Leading Cities

Cities have experience in Agenda 21 for culture, and therefore they become the leaders in the implementation of Culture 21 Actions and the advocacy activities of the Committee.

Annually, the Leading Cities receive the support of the Secretariat of the Committee in the areas of Cooperation and Learning (technical assistance, capacity-building good practices) and Communication (website, social networks); and the Leading Cities are spokespersons for the Committee on culture of UCLG in international meetings and events.

The leading cities in 2015 are:
