Culture is considered to be one of the pillars of the
EDS. Within the culture the cultural heritage has to
see with the promotion of the citizenship with the
relationship among societies and individuals.
Culture shapes what we mean by development and
determines the people behaviour in the world.
This perspective points to the relationship between
culture and sustainable development through a dual
approach: developing the own cultural sectors
(namely: heritage, creativity, art, cultural industries,
cultural tourism); and advocating for the culture to
be properly recognized in all the public policies,
particularly in those related with education,
economy, science, communication, environment,
social cohesion and international cooperation.
