BSR Cultural Pearls Guidebook

This guidebook serves as an introduction for local and regional authorities who want to strengthen and empower their communities.

The Guidebook gives answers to the following questions: 

  • What is social resilience? 
  • How does culture build social resilience? 
  • Why participation matters? 
  • Where do I start? – The Culture & Resilience Action Plan
