UNESCO Cities of Design

Istanbul will be hosting the 2021 UNESCO Annual Conference, as a result of the work of İnfoloji on behalf of the Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality within the scope of the Istanbul UNESCO Design City project; and the online voting of 180 members of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN), which includes 72 countries.

General Manager of İnfoloji, Dr. Muhammed Attila Sevim, made a presentation in Fabriano, Italy, last June, and with the vote of Mayors and senior executives of 175 different cities in 72 different countries, Istanbul was granted to host the UNESCO Annual Conference to be held in 2021.

Istanbul, who will be the host of one of the most important international meetings of the world with the joint commitments of Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality and Istanbul Design Office leaving behind the important cities within the UNESCO Creative Cities Network (UCCN), was selected as a UNESCO Design City in 2017 by the application file prepared by İnfoloji. The same team achieved another success with the Application File of the UNESCO Ordinary General Assembly Meeting.
