Holy See/ 3.4 International cultural co-operation  

3.4.3 European / international actors and programmes

The Holy See participates in over 80 Council of Europe committees and working groups, as well as in many of UNESCO's working groups, and maintains active relations with the ministries for culture or equivalent bodies of many countries by organising joint activities, both in Rome and abroad. The body that animates the Catholic Church's global pastoral adoption and implementation of the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions is the Pontifical Council for Culture. The implementation of the Convention is approached through all the Church's different media and all the museums, collections, and cultural goods.
