The first Universal Forum of Cultures
The Fórum Universal de las Culturas was first organized in Barcelona in the year 2004. The event pivoted over three axes: sustainable development, cultural diversity and conditions for Peace.
This first edition was organized by the Generalitat de Catalunya, the Spanish Government, the Municipality of Barcelona and the UNESCO. Its origin aimed to an itinerant project replicating three years onto the city of Monterrey (Mexico). The truth is that after this edition the project ceased to exist.
The convening in Barcelona gathered over three million visitors and over six million people participated in the group of actitivies of the Forum from May 9th to September 26th of 2004.
