2023 ENCATC Academy on sustainable cultural management and policy


ENCATC is proud to launch the 2023 edition of the ENCATC Academy taking place in Santander (Spain) from 24-27 April. Focusing once more this year on sustainable cultural management and policy, under the frame of the European Year of Skills, this educational activity is the instrument by which ENCATC wishes to contribute to a climate-neutral and sustainable future.

The ENCATC Academy, hosted in the frame of the European Year of Skills, is the space for the cultural management and policy community to come together for learning and adopting a new behavior as a professional and as a citizen. In this sense, the Academy facilitates exchange and insight through some key pillars: educating and training those who will be teaching the future generation of cultural actors (training the trainers), empowering cultural managers and operators with new practices for their sustainability efforts, and equipping policy makers with new knowledge for developing new sustainable policies.

As an organization, ENCATC has embarked on a green path since 2011 by developing a Green Policy of its own, molding events to be compliant with sustainable goals, partnering with key players on the topic, and joining key initiatives, such as the Climate Heritage Network and its manifestos.

But the collective dimension of any substantial action in the realm of sustainability cannot be overlooked. In this sense, the Academy was developed to allow and enact the mission of involving other actors in the efforts for climate resilience. For this reason, the Academy is open to all those who have stakes in the field and recognize the challenges ahead for cultural sustainability: uniting forces and collaborating are the way to achieve tangible, significant results
