cS Explains


 Space for dialogue 

 Cultural relations  

In 2023, culture Solutions actively shaped cultural relations through collaborative efforts. We co-organised two roundtables: one on policy beyond 2024 and another one on climate. We took part in hearings, podcasts and events, making a significant impact on the global cultural landscape.



 Space for dialogue 

 Cultural relations 

The Composing trust podcast is an observatory that delves into the dynamic interplay between international cultural relations and various aspects, including heritage protection, youth, green initiatives, and the digital realm. Through giving voice to diverse speakers, the podcast actively contributes to fostering understanding, collaboration, and respect for cultural richness.
