The ICOM Kyoto 2019 panel on Museums and Local development aims at bringing together the representatives of museums and local governments in order to explore future collaborative strategies.
In this session, organised jointly with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and development (OECD), participants will share their expertise developing stronger policies and action plans to better implement their local and sustainable development agendas.
This panel is a new step in the collaboration of ICOM and the OECD, which started with the publication of the Guide for Local Governments and Museums. launched on December 2018. The Guide is organised around five major themes: cultural development and education (1), economic development and innovation (2), urban regeneration and community development (3), inclusion, health and well-being (4) and managing museums for local development (5). The Guide for Local Governments, Communities and Museums is a road map for local governments, museums and museum professionals on how to jointly define a local development agenda that promotes a more sustainable future.
