Chapter Summary

This chapter presents a recommendation on the participation by the people at large in cultural life and their contribution to it, adopted by the General Conference of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) meeting in Nairobi, held on 26 November 1976. The Recommendation concerns everything that should be done by Member States or the authorities to democratize the means and instruments of cultural activity, so as to enable all individuals to participate freely and fully in cultural creation and its benefits, in accordance with the requirements of social progress. Member States or the appropriate authorities should foster cultural development research projects which aim at evaluating current activities as well as stimulating new experiments. Member States or the appropriate authorities should offer young people a wide range of cultural activities which correspond to their needs and aspirations.
