On the 16th December 2021, you have the chance to be part of a unique experience hosted by DeuS in Matera, Italy. For this day, we run a pop-up radio station especially for the final conference of DeuS. The DeuS partners meet in Matera or tune in online and share the achievements of the project and finalise it there. The conference is divided into several “shows” each concerned with a different topic from the project and hosted by various partners of DeuS. You can participate actively in the radio show and contribute to debates and topics with your questions or suggestions. The conference starts at 9.30 on the 16th of December.

The ECBN with its Director Bernd Fesel proudly announces that it will participate in the activities organised by Nesta's Policy& Evidence Center to promote A Global Agenda for the Cultural and Creative Industries. 

It is the PEC’s contribution to the United Nations 2021 International Year of Creative Economy for Sustainable Development. It was created in response to an invitation made by the UN General Assembly to the international community, and was written in partnership with the British Council. The Global Agenda was written alongside the PEC International Council, and sets out 11 key actions for international creative industries and governments worldwide to support the growth of creative industries and help them to tackle some of the biggest challenges of the 21st century.

This is the first time that an international group representing the global creative industries has come together with these goals in mind. It represents the culmination of a two-year coordinated discussion spanning more than 18 countries. The Global Agenda was launched at the World Conference on Creative Economy held in Dubai.
