The Creative UNESCO Cities Network is first and foremost a space for collaboration and experimentation to invent the city of tomorrow". Thus, in the words of Ernesto Ottone R. - Assistant Director-General for UNESCO Culture - the video presenting the Creative Cities Network created and published by Unesco opens.

Here are presented the Creative Cities (180 cities in 72 countries), a mixture of perspectives, different economies, different cultures: from Istanbul, City of Design, to Zahle (Lebanon), City of Gastronomy,

All sharing one mission: to create and develop sustainable, resilient, inclusive, creative cities.

Incubators of good practices, such as Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso), City of Crafts & Folk Art, places of diversity, inclusion, cooperation, such as Santos (Brazil) and Busan (Republic of Korea), Cities of Film. Innovation laboratories, such as Enghien-les-Bains (France), City of Media Arts. Champions of sustainability (towards Agenda 2030) such as Idanha-a-Nova (Portugal), City of Music and Edinburgh (United Kingdom and Northern Ireland), City of Literature.

The Call for Applications to present the Candidacy is now open, the dossier will be filed in June 2019: it would be a great opportunity for Biella to become part of this circuit. To see the video visit our website on the "Network" page.
