The Cross-Continental Cooperation Project (2013-18) was a 5-year project that took place from 2013-18 and conducted by the Academy for Cultural Diplomacy in cooperation with global governance organizations, national governments, international corporations and leading academic institutions. The project’s main aim was to use the application of cultural diplomacy in order to improve intercultural relations and by doing so, uniting the great powers of the contemporary world to better face today's global concerns.
The vision of the project is to create through its networks & participants, innovative follow-up initiatives and programs in order to further the dialogue and to create a sustainable impact in strengthening the cross-continental cooperation.
