Cultural activities and creative industries are amongst Europe’s most competitive and energy-intensive industries. However, culture and creativity offer a source of innovation for climate change mitigation, hold the key to reshaping behaviours and living practices meaningfully and at scale.

After the Brainstorming meeting the selected participants will jointly write a Brainstorming report of 20–30 pages reflecting on their discussions and recommendations for decision makers. The report will be presented to the European Commission at a Dialogue meeting on 12 September 2023 in Brussels.
