EXECUTIVE BRIEF

Culture, as an expression of people's identity, is the source of much tourism, collaborative innovation and sustainable co-existence of the world's civilizations and traditions. Future Cultural Capitals are the cities and regions that in the coming decade will attract a preponderance of the world's cultural capital. They are the places that will be the models for urban and tourism innovation. They will be magnets for intellectual artists, for performing arts, music and entertainment capital. Through collaboration, Future Cultural Capitals can enhance the value of their cultural heritage, and reduce the effect of economic downturns on tourism, and the associated income for cities.

This session answers the following questions:

  • What is the role of cultural entrepreneurs in re-imagining new collaboration models?
  • Can Future Cultural Capitals be sustainable, populated and collaborative?
  • What are the types of capital driving the world’s Future Cultural Capitals such as Milan and Abu Dhabi? 
  • What are the true economic and competitive opportunities of intercultural dialogue?
