The Creative Cities Network is a project under the patronage of UNESCO. With the aim of celebrating and maintaining cultural diversity, the alliance formed by member cities share their experiences in promoting the local heritage, as well as discuss plans on how to cope with the influx of globalization. The Creative Cities Network aims to find and enrich a member city’s cultural identity in the midst of a growing trend towards internationalism. The project focuses on the main product of excellence of these cities, and finds ways to maintain its relevance in city life, local economy and social development. The fields of excellence are classified among: Literature, Film, Music, Craft and Folk Art, Design, Media Arts, and Gastronomy. Despite the general knowledge that change (towards modernity) is generated from urbanization, the Network aims to adapt and harness the proliferation of technology and social development to further a city’s product of excellence. In doing so, the city becomes a center for the protection of a past industry and its eventual preservation.

BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt

The BMW Foundation aims to facilitate global dialogue and to drive social innovation. To this end, the Foundation brings together people from across cultures, countries and communities around selected key areas. The work of the Foundation targets one group in particular: international leaders. As influential opinion makers with a wealth of experience, they can make an important contribution to a society based on solidarity. On one hand, this allows them to consider the social impact of their professional activities, while on the other, also allows them to step out of their comfort zone and embrace a more civic-minded approach. The Foundation helps leaders to utilize their skills and networks in the form of pro bono or philanthropic engagement, or to cooperate with civil-society organizations. The BMW Foundation has been supporting the Global Pro Bono Network since 2012, notably through the organization of the yearly Global Pro Bono Summit.
