Susanna Ferran Vila, Giorgia Miotto, Josep Rom Rodríguez

Research output: Indexed journal article Articlepeer-review


The main goal of this research is to analyze the experts’ opinions on cultural sustainability and the importance of sustainable development in the EU cultural policies. Besides, the research analyses how institutional communication may contribute to the introduction of the sustainable development, and, specifically, of the SDGs in the European Union cultural policies’ definition. In order to achieve these objectives, we share a survey with several experts in EU cultural policies. The experts’ conclusions show that the SDGs need to be explicitly included in the cultural policies, adding a more practical perspective through specific projects and action plans. Institutional communication is a strategic factor for the success of sustainable development in terms of cultural policies and cultural sustainability in the European Union.
