  3. 3. Culture and Sustainable Development– a flagship project in EUSBSR (2.0)Culture is part of the sustainability agenda today1987 Brundtland report: 3 pillars of sustainability – economic, social, environmentCulture as 4thpillar?…culture across borders, shaping standards and behaviorGrowing attention from politics // business // cities // regionsBut HOW – and what works? 
  4. 4. EUSBSR strategy – priority area cultureNordic Council of Ministers led flagship projectMapping existing stakeholders, activities, interests and opportunities for cooperationFirst step --- then:Develop knowledge: Baltic Sea Region // impact of culture // sustainable development// economic // social // environmental // cultural 
  5. 5. Phase 1: Mapping stakeholders, activities, interests and opportunities for cooperationResult:“Culture and Sustainable development-8 findings, a number of opportunitiesand a way forward” Dome of Visions, CPH
  6. 6. - The stakeholders- Their current activities- Their interests in engaging ⇒ opportunities for cooperation
  7. 7. Findings and opportunities…The area of cultural collaboration and sustainability is rich andcomplex⇒ Stakeholders engage in many ways, for many reasons⇒ A snapshot⇒ Diversity // abundance // fragmentationNot one identity but a number⇒ Several vectors: Nordic-Baltic, Nordic-Russian, German-Russian⇒ Bi-lateral linkages impact on activities of born-baltic institutions⇒ Complexity can also be an asset = Diversity => innovation 
  8. 8. Europe 2020 Strategy provides a launch pad for C&Sinitiatives⇒ Smart, Sustainable and Inclusive⇒ Growth and developmentNeed for cultural stakeholders to engage beyond ownsphere and comfort zone⇒ Culture can catalyse a shift away from sector-based policy making… if culture values are communicated and tailored tomeet also other objectives 
  9. 9. Some challenges⇒ Different approaches to culture and to sustainability⇒ Different approaches to stakeholder engagement andcooperation⇒ Lack of knowledge on cultural drivers for sustainability(proof of concepts’, practices and tools).But BSR have opportunities to pioneer sustainabledevelopment through culture⇒ Urban Development⇒ Creative Industries⇒ Social Innovation (the social process of innovation +innovation with social purpose) 
  10. 10. Seek for solutions through complexity // diversity⇒ Diverse histories, identities, social systems and approaches toculture and sustainable development⇒ Use diverse meshworks to increase awareness and cross-fertilize effortsThere is an outspoken need for improved dialogue⇒ Connect rich but fragmented activities and efforts⇒ Engage stakeholders at different levels from within andoutside the cultural sphere⇒ Focus on practical and concrete activities• stories, practices, idea generation, anchoring, innovation 
  11. 11.  Opportunities?Reducing complexity to embrace sustainabilityCulture as the transversal vector across sectorsExamples:– innovation centres / hubs across art, gaming, social leverage– frontrunners in sectors: business, art, science, urban planning, innovation, etc– improving cross-fertilization– transcultural // transdisciplinary // practical engagement– renewing islands // sectors // regions // industries // communitiesx
  12. 12. Summarizing findings..A myriad of projectsMultitude ofapproaches/methodsLack of knowledge ofeffectsLack of visibility amongagentsLack of cross-fertilizingMore transdisciplinarity andtransversality needed 
  13. 13.  Findings and opportunities…AHEAD: successful projects have a clear and understandable scope→ Having a clear focus also implies some reduced complexity→ Action-based and action-inviting increases motivation→ High strategic ambitions attract attention and support→ Joint knowledge building must be made an advantage
