UNESCO (United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization) recently added Bilbao to its Creative Cities Network in the ‘Design' category.

This international recognition allows Bilbao to join a select group of global cities recognized for design along with Berlin, Buenos Aires, Beijing, Shanghai, Montreal, Seoul, Nagoya, Kobe, Shenzen, Saint Étienne and Graz.

Other cities joining the Creative Cities Network in the Design category in 2014 are Helsinki (Finland), Torino (Italy), Curitiba (Brazil) and Dundee (Great Britain).

The UNESCO seal, a symbol of excellence and quality, awards Bilbao’s commitment to design as a strategic element, capable of generating economy, strengthen business networks and create jobs.
