Initiatives supporting operations at the national level
The cultural policy of the state on the diversity and promotion of the modern way of thinking about the culture, as a factor of the economic and social development is being supported, inter alia, by the Polish National Commission for UNESCO. The text of the Convention in Polish together with the information about activities of UNESCO and links to the www.unesco.org web site were published on the web site of this institution. The Polish National Commission for UNESCO actively participates, within the framework of organised conferences and publishing activities, in the popularisation of the message of the UNESCO Convention of 2005, and particularly focuses on highlighting the importance of culture for the sustainable development (this issue was extensively described in the section 2.3) and the role of education in the promotion of the cultural diversity. In the years 2008 – 2011 these operations included the organisation of domestic conferences – in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage, under the honorary patronage of the Marshal of the Parliament – and related book publications:
- "Culture and sustainable development. Environment, spatial order, heritage”(2009) – the conference related to the subject of the art. 13 of the UNESCO Convention was attended by representatives of the Ministry of Culture and National Heritage and members of the Parliament, representatives of local governments and cultural and educational societies.
- "Education through culture.

The conference was attended by representatives of the Ministry of National Education and members of the Parliament, representatives of local authorities, scientists and teachers.
