IPI is very pleased with the national approval of the applications of Bragança and Castelo Branco to the UNESCO Creative Cities Network

After the success of the work carried out by IPI in the applications of Idanha-a-Nova – Portugal (2015) and Praia – Cape Verde (2017), which integrated the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, in the category of Music, IPI welcomes the approval in Portugal, by the UNESCO National Commission, of the applications of Bragança (in the category of Gastronomy) and Castelo Branco (in the category of Crafts and Folk Arts).

These two applications, which had the support of IPI in their preparation, now go to UNESCO in Paris for the international evaluation phase, the results of which are expected at the end of October 2023.

We are sure of the merit and importance of these applications for these low-density territories. Regardless of the final decision by the UNESCO jury, these are processes that contribute very significantly to the positive transformation of local communities.
