International cooperation and cultural exchange is becoming all the more relevant in today’s landscape of political restrictions and sanctions. Cultural initiatives help expand horizons, enrich cultural heritage, and deepen mutual understanding between cultures. Success stories in international cultural cooperation demonstrate how an understanding of and respect for cultural differences can help strengthen ties between peoples. What strategies would be most effective for overcoming cultural barriers when implementing international projects? What practical steps can be taken to strengthen international ties and expand cultural exchange in the face of global political tensions? What opportunities exist to strengthen mutual understanding and trust between the BRICS countries through cultural projects? What can we do to get young people involved in international cultural projects and get them interested in cultural exchange?
