Cultural sustainability is not a cultural policy issue in Lithuania. The main principles of sustainable activity are set by the National Strategy of the Sustainable Development approved by the Government of the Republic of Lithuania in 2011. The Strategy does not address the sustainability of cultural activities, with the exception of tourism. In tourism, the long-term objectives are to implement the sustainable development principles by planning and performing territorial tourism development and carrying out tourism infrastructure projects at national and municipal levels. The main long-term tasks of sustainable development of tourism are as follows: to enhance the scope and variety of tourism services; to develop the infrastructure of tourism and recreation; to make better use of the distinctiveness of the nature and culture of the country’s regions as well as of the valuable ethno cultural objects; to improve the national system of management, planning and support for tourism and recreation; to prioritise the development of cultural, ecological and active recreation as well as health tourism; to promote the aforementioned activities, giving preference to projects ensuring the preservation of the environmental quality as well as rational use of recreational resources; to promote and provide full support to the development of the public infrastructure of bicycle and water tourism; and to improve dissemination of information.
Awareness of cultural sustainability is manifested in some of cultural projects and activities, mainly in local cultural projects.
