What is happening in this world? The international political situation is fragile. Can Europe defy the gravity of nationalism and fragmentation by launching a new holistic dynamic of unity and beauty? Can creative industries help to define Europe’s identity better and help the social transformation of the green deal into a cultural movement, even in times where the culture sector is in crisis? What is the role of education in this process? Is cultural and ecological benchmarking possible in a time where the balance between prosperity and growth is uncertain? Being creative is highly important for politics to go beyond traditional political and economic interdependencies.
