Serbia was chosen by the United Nations as one of six countries in the world in which will be held the second phase of national consultations focused exclusively on culture and development.

In the new round of consultations, the citizens of Serbia have the chance to say how they see the role of culture in development processes; as well as how they see the relationship of culture with: poverty, education, gender equality, sustainable cities and urbanization, environmental protection and climate change, as well as social inclusion and reconciliation.
