Creative Cities - A Model of Sustainable City Planning

Abstract: Cities play a leading role in the sustainable development of the localities. Owing to their capacities and complex functions, they can stimulate economic innovation and cultural creativeness, the utilisation of the collective intelligence, the training of the local entrepreneurial and intellectual abilities. Being included in networks and associations (e.g. Creative Cities Network), major urban centres promote excellence, cultural diversity and successful partnership models, and support creative businesses and sustainable development of urban areas by stimulating constructive energies.

According to Politiques pour la créativité, a UNESCO Guide promoted in 2012, developed cities have an undisputable creative potential, usually gathering all major actors of the creative industries - authors, producers, distributors, advertisers, etc. - i.e. they have the necessary means to mobilise this potential to the urban communities’ benefit.
