Why we bother

We contribute independently to the excellence of EU international cultural relations with the opening of creative trust-building spaces, the production of commons and the brokerage of know-how.

Culture Solutions Europe, or short culture Solutions, was created as a French association on 23 October 2018 in a context of uncertainty and questioning of the European integration project, while technological change is affecting the ways Humanity deals with an ecologically threatened planet.

We follow a specific Theory of Change.

cS Brief #12: Cultural Heritage Protection in crises: strengthening the EU’s role

This brief builds on the debate held at the joint EUISS-cS round table, held on the 12 October 2022 in Brussels, and provides some updates on EU cultural heritage protection in crises and conflict situations, in light of the recent developments in Ukraine and other countries.
