(A) culture and the arts in the broadest sense
(B) intercultural dialogue and the promotion of different cultural identities
(C) sustainability in all its facets
(D) promoting innovative approaches and new technologies in society and economy

CulturePolis develops many of its own activities but also gives weight to the creation of synergies between initiatives and programs of other institutions which have distinct roles with corresponding obligations, duties and rights. For this purpose, CulturePolis encourages cooperation between citizens and bodies of self-administrative, governmental, scientific, political, cultural and other social groups, organizations and institutions as well as the private sector and the strengthening of their ties with other important advocates of cultures and societies around the world, with emphasis on South – Eastern Europe and the wider region, covering the entire Euro – Mediterranean space.
