CISAC President Jean-Michel Jarre, Board Chairperson Eric Baptiste and Director General Gadi Oron met with United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres in New York on October 8th.
The meeting focused on CISAC’s global role in promoting economic and cultural development and the power of creators as an engine for economic growth. The need for increased protections for creators in the digital market was also discussed. The challenges for creators, especially in the digital world, have created a pressing need for solutions at global level.
The CISAC delegation explored ways in which UN institutions can put greater focus on the promotion of creators’ rights and interests online with the Secretary-General, as well as how creators’ protections can be integrated into the UN’s 2030 agenda for sustainable development. How CISAC can contribute to the goals related to work and economic growth as well as promoting inclusive and sustainable innovation technology was also explored.
As the global voice of creators, CISAC strongly supports implementation of the founding principles established by the United Nations. The meeting takes CISAC’s moves to strengthen partnerships with UN agencies to a new level.
