SOFT&GREEN UN Sustainable Development Goals

Culture, an instrument of change

Culture is the only asset of humanity that, when divided between us all, becomes greater rather than smaller.
This quote from German philosopher Hans Georg Gadamer reminds us of the importance of sharing knowledge and offering more learning opportunities to young people. High-quality education provides you with the tools to understand the changes taking place, allows you to make more informed choices, stimulates critical thinking and leads to innovation.

Culture as a value creator.
Agenda 2030 also draws on the importance of ensuring inclusive and equitable quality education and promoting lifelong learning opportunities for all. Among the 17 Sustainable Development Goals, the 4th underlines the urgent need to increase the cultural capital of people, especially young people, so that everyone can be protagonists of the change taking place. Many companies are also investing in education and training projects for young people. They have understood that culture creates social value and competitive advantage and that a better prepared society is able to provide adequate and new skills to respond to the challenges ahead.
