Beijing, China — On June 6, the Director-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, opened the UNESCO Creative Cities Network Summit (6 - 8 June 2016) with Wang Anshun, Mayor of Beijing, and Yuan Guiren, Minister of Education of the People’s Republic of China.

More than one hundred participants from all over the world attended the Summit, including mayors and policy-makers of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network, academics, and experts.
