ECBN conducts a Feasibility Study for UNESCO on the Creation of a Regular Consultation Mechanism with Micro, Small and Medium-sized Cultural and Creative Enterprises involved in the implementation of the 2005 Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions

This feasibility study consists of carrying out a preliminary analysis to determine the possible modalities and costs of setting up a regular consultation mechanism with micro, small and medium-sized cultural and creative enterprises with regard to the provisions of the UNESCO 2005 Convention, as well as to assess the contribution that these enterprises would be in a position to make to the work of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions. The results of the feasibility study will be presented to the Committee so that it can decide on the establishment of such a mechanism.

In the framework of this study, which is being conducted by ECBN and 3Walks, interviews with CCIs, Civil Society Organisations and UNESCO staff. Furthermore, a survey was designed for cultural and creative industries of all cultural sectors, types and sizes, as well as from all over the world, and some questions were also posed to Intergovernmental Committee members.
