cS Explains


(Re)generating trust podcast mini-series

 Space for dialogue  Cultural relations 

In this mini-series we tackle the not-so-obvious link between youth and culture. Why is it important to give youth a space in the cultural sector? How can the EU institutions and member states do it? Youth is an advocate for culture and creative skills, able to regenerate societies and trust in institutions. This series is a platform for young professionals from the cultural sector and European initiatives who support them to expose their work and formulate their recommendations. 

 Space for dialogue 

Cultural relations 

In the first episode of the series, we hear inspirational examples of artistic and cultural collaboration between Europe and Rwanda and learn how European cultural centres can act as bridges for youth in culture.



 Space for dialogue  Digital & Trade 

In the third episode of the mini-series Composing trustworthiness, we dive deep into our core topic: the impact of Artificial Intelligence on International Cultural Relations, and the way this disruptive technology drives or impedes relations with partners around the globe.



 Space for dialogue 

 Cultural relations 


On 30 May, our co-founder Felipe Basabe is taking part in the roundtable orgainsed by the Club Alumni de Impacto Social of the Comillas University. The event explores the different experiences of the public, private and third sectors in measuring and funding social impact in the cultural sphere.



 Information sharing 

 Cultural relations 

April and May have been filled with world days celebrating culture: Heritage Day, Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development, Museum Day, Living Together in Peace, Multilateralism and Diplomacy for Peace... Check the full list and their significance.
