Havana and Trinidad declared as UNESCO Creative CitiesHAVANA, Nov 5 (ACN) The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) declared the Cuban towns of Havana and Trinidad as Creative Cities of UNESCO, as part of the World Day of Cities, on October 31.

The Declaration represents an international recognition that this organization grants to those cities that recognize creativity as a strategic factor of sustainable urban development.
Cities nominated in this category do so in one of the seven creative fields defined by UNESCO: crafts and popular arts, digital arts, cinema, design, gastronomy, literature and music.
On this occasion, Havana was declared a Creative City because of its legendary creativity in music and Trinidad because of its crafts and popular arts, and they are the first Cuban cities to receive this status and join UNESCO's Creative Cities Network.
The network is currently made up by 246 cities around the world that have this status, in the seven creative fields.
Havana and Trinidad must now implement the action plan presented during the nomination process to UNESCO's international body of experts, in charge of assessing the dossiers of more than 600 cities nominated, but only 66 of them reached that status, according to official sources.
