The meeting has taken place on 23-24 November 2017, at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris. It followed the first coordination meeting, held in December 2015, and was organized around the overarching theme of Culture as an enabler of sustainable development. Prof. L. Cantoni (Chair holder), participated in the event, which provided an excellent opportunity to share experience and knowledge and promote interaction with other UNESCO category 2 institutes and centres (C2C2s) as well as other UNESCO Chairs in the Culture sector (see the list of participants), through various thematic presentations and group discussions. The complete program can be found here.

The new on-line platform of UNESCO Chairs and C2Cs “Network of UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs and C2Cs related to Culture” was officially launched: it aims at enhancing effective communication and building capacity for information sharing among C2Cs, UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs and UNESCO.
