Describe the main features of the policy/measure: 

The UNESCO Creative Cities Network was created in 2004 to promote cooperation among cities that identify creativity as a strategic factor in sustainable urban development.
The Network covers seven creative fields: crafts and folk arts, media arts, film, design, gastronomy, literature and music.
When a city joins the Creative Cities Network, it becomes a privileged partner of UNESCO, and the city commits to share its best practices and develop partnerships that involve the public and private sectors, and civil society, in order to strengthen the creation, production, distribution and dissemination of cultural activities, goods and services, and fully integrate culture and creativity in sustainable development plans.
