Society and culture

Culture and society are often talked about, but we don’t always see how they interact with each other, or fully appreciate the power they have.

Culture – the beliefs, behaviours and objects common to the members of a particular group – is a fundamental part of the infrastructure on which our societies depend, and a wellspring from which we can reflect and reinvent, when faced with the urgent need to find ways to better co-exist on our planet.

Our publishing promotes SDG3 health and well-being, through recognising the role culture plays in our lives, in our most disadvantaged communities, in old age and in the making of government policy.

Additionally, by listening to different societies, and different cultures within those societies, we can often find new perspectives and different approaches to tackling the problems that cut across all cultures.
