What is it about?

Four main topics

The SHIFT partners - 9 European and International cultural networks - recognised three years ago the need to join forces to work on the global agenda of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The networks' leaders wished to improve their capacity for giving guidance to their teams, organisations, and members.
Through the SHIFT project, many resources have been gathered, interviews and surveys conducted, and fact sheets, key findings, reports, handbooks, guidelines and a certification scheme are being produced on how to use all the information researched on the following topics:
CULTURAL LEADERSHIP - We have aimed at giving guidance on ways of leading an organisation in the cultural sector and leading change associated to following the UN SDGs. Trans Europe Halles led the topic of Cultural Leadership.
ENVIRONMENTAL SUSTAINABILITY - We have joined forces to kick-start an environmental shift in all aspects of society: economic, educational, scientific, cultural, and many more. ELIA led the topic of Environmental Sustainability.
GENDER AND POWER-RELATIONS - We have aimed at supporting organisations to create safe working spaces and equip them with tools, solutions and ideas to fight gender related power abuses and harassment. IETM led the topic of Gender and Power-Relations.
INCLUSION - We have focused on giving guidance on creating a more inclusive society, which lies in guaranteeing the right to access all aspects of society and the autonomy of decision-making for all. European Choral Association led the topic of Inclusion.
