Ashgabat prepares to join the UNESCO Creative Cities Network

Today, the Ministry of Culture hosted a working video meeting on the inclusion of Ashgabat in the Creative Cities Network of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in the Design category, in which the Permanent Representative of our country to UNESCO also took part online.

According to the State News Agency of Turkmenistan, during the meeting, issues related to the inclusion of Ashgabat in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network were specified, the achieved results and planned further steps were discussed. They also exchanged views on the development of a long-term program for cooperation between the cities of the Network, ready to invest in culture and social integration.

As you know, this month the corresponding nomination application of the city of Ashgabat was officially accepted by the UNESCO Secretariat. It will be reviewed by independent experts, and the final decision on this issue will be announced by the Director-General of UNESCO ahead of the celebration of World Cities Day, which is celebrated on 31 October.

The inclusion of Ashgabat in the UNESCO Creative Cities Network will not only be another fact of recognition of the merits of the Turkmen capital in the development of international cultural dialogue, but will also expand its interaction with the cities of the world, which also consider culture and creativity as a strategic element of sustainable socio-economic development.
