MESOC Tools

The New European Agenda for Culture with its strategic objective to harness “the power of culture and cultural diversity for social cohesion and well-being” builds on three elements of a structural model: Health and Well-being, Urban and Territorial Renovation, People’s Engagement and Participation. These three elements, taken individually, obviously influence each other and involve very important aspects of public policy such as research, education, and planning. Taken together, as MESOC propose to do, they form a coherent picture of the way culture carries its societal impacts, creating value to the individuals and the communities in ways that are qualitatively known and to some extent predictable and practiced by policy innovators, yet very hard to bring to quantitative measurement.
