Cebu City was included in the list together with 65 other cities for the reason that they pushed for creativity and revolution as major elements in developing urban communities.
According to UNESCO Director-General Audrey Azoulay, “All over the world, these cities, each in its way, make culture the pillar, not an accessory, of their strategy,” and that this is in favor of the political and social innovation that can be essential to the young people.
UNESCO’s network was created to promote cooperation among the cities of the world that have recognized creativity as a tool for a sustainable urban development.
