Seminar on CGCS Database: Data for Culture and Arts 



The Culture|2030 Indicators were developed as a framework of thematic indicators to support and complement the global indicators agreed upon within the UN 2030 Agenda to measure culture’s contribution to the national and local implementation transversally to the different Goals and Targets.  Prof Desmond Hui was invited to participate in the preparation workshops by UNESCO prior to its launch in 2019 and he is now part of the Expert Facility to support UN Member States in Implementing the Culture|2030 Indicators.  He will explain in this seminar the ideas of the indicators as well as the initial efforts by CGCS to construct a database for culture and the arts for a selection of the BRI (Belt and Road Initiative) countries.
