Our Cultural Dialogue and Heritage actions
In all of our host regions, heritage is a precious asset that unites communities, affirms their identity and structures their future. Culture enables people to expand their horizons and develop skills that are essential to social cohesion. It also boosts local appeal by creating job opportunities and driving tourism and economic development.
TotalEnergies owes its success to the thousands of men and women, located in 130 countries and representing 150 different nationalities, who work together and with our local stakeholders. Cultural dialogue is therefore part of our DNA.
On the strength of this experience, the Fondation TotalEnergies wants to reinforce among young people, the values of living together and their potential to act through culture and heritage, which are sources of mutual understanding and emancipation. Young people are systematically involved in the cultural programs we support, be it encouraging the emergence of artistic initiatives that give them opportunities for self-expression and growth, training them in cultural heritage restoration to enhance their employability, or initiating college students in playing music at a high level.
Focusing on Education in the Arts and Culture
The Fondation TotalEnergies has decided to increase its support for cultural projects that use artistic creation as a catalyst for social cohesion and personal fulfillment among young people. More than 7,400 young people aged between 12 and 25 will benefit from this redeployment of resources.
