Sustainable Development Goals

Since 2017, TMW has been working with several partners to raise awareness of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in Estonia across various activities and programme elements. The keywords of this action have been a caring digital culture, human-centric urban space development, inclusion of marginalised groups, gender equality and environmentally conscious behaviour, justice and strong institutions.

To find a balance between the planet’s limited ecological resources and the well-being of its population, 193 countries in the UN agreed in 2015 on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) until 2030, both at the state and international levels.

TMW focuses on environmental awareness and conscious living, mental health, and the resilience of the cultural sector. Our activities are also guided by an additional SDG that Estonia has taken upon itself – “The viability of the Estonian cultural space”, which aims at maintaining the continuity and vitality of Estonia as a nation-state through culture. The values, methods, behavioural models, mindset and lifestyle that SDGs bring form a significant innovation in society that can be brought to fruition through culture.

Bringing together representatives from the music and culture sector, as well as institutions, community initiatives, businesses and researchers for the TMW conference and public talks series, we’ll take a closer look at how the music and culture sector can contribute to working towards the SDGs.

Since 2023, we have been working on applying the concept of sustainable development goals to Tallinn’s music industry as a partner of UNESCO Music City Tallinn. More information (in Estonian
