More information

Culture, Youth, Sports & Media are facing huge challenges at various policy levels in a volatile, uncertain and rapidly changing world and we, as SARC (the strategic advisory body for the policy domains of Culture, Youth, Sports and Media of the Government of Flanders) want to facilitate a rich discussion and debate exploring these challenges from a European perspective in order to develop proactive policies that are relevant across the different member countries/regions.
In order to fulfil this aim we have divided our seminar into two parts. For the first part, we have invited Dr. Kirsten Dunlop, CEO of the EIT Climate-KIC and member of the European Commission’s Expert Group on the Economic and Social Impact of Research and Innovation (ESIR) to contextualise our discussion with a keynote on how the Culture and Creative sectors can drive the Green Transition.
In the second part of our seminar, we have asked prof. dr. Susanne Janssen from Erasmus University Rotterdam and coordinator of the European Horizon research project INVENT, “European Inventory of Societal Values of Culture as a Basis for Inclusive Cultural Policies in the Globalizing World” to give a presentation on the results of the above study. 
Susanne will share data collected over a three year period from 14,000 respondents in nine European countries (the Netherlands, Spain, France, Denmark, Finland, Great Britain, Switzerland, Croatia, and Serbia) about Europeans’ engagement with culture in relation to societal megatrends of digitalization, globalization, Europeanization, migration, and rising inequalities. She will highlight some key findings obtained from this rich empirical material, which have also implications for cultural policy research and practice. We also would like to know what your thoughts are on how to realize a much-needed “social turn” in cultural policy making.
A panel will reflect on both imputs from our presenters and then invite the audience to contribute.
