On 21 and 22 January 2018, an informal conference for culture ministers was held in Davos prior to the World Economic Forum. As a result of the discussions, countries attending concluded the Davos Declaration on Baukultur. The declaration's aim is to strengthen Baukultur as a topic of public interest across different sectors and at various levels of responsibility. As an interdisciplinary field of action, Baukultur is of great importance for integrated and sustainable urban and regional development.
