Na konferenci vystoupí spolu s domácími řečníky také řada zahraničních hostů, mezi nimiž budou zástupci Velké Británie -  Ali Fisher,  Německa - Berthold Franke, Rakouska - Peter Fantasy a předsednické země EU Dánska - Flemming Johannesen, a dále Ana Paula Laborinho, prezidentka Globální sítě EUNIC a Gottfried Wagner za občanskou iniciativu Více Evropy.
Konference se bude zabývat potenciálem kultury pozitivně ovlivňovat rozvoj vztahů mezi Evropou a zbytkem světa. Zaměří se i na hledání praktických námětů jak co nejefektivněji využívat schopnost kultury přibližovat náš způsob života založený na hodnotách demokracie, svobody a lidských práv a získávat tím pro něj větší porozumění. Pozornost bude věnována také platformě Evropské unie jako nástroji pro posílení kapacity jednotlivých členských států oslovit publikum v zemích jako je Čína, či Indie.

Ministerstvo zahraničních věcí ČR akci pořádá ve spolupráci se sdružením kulturních institutů zemí Evropské unie - EUNIC. Dalšími partnery jsou Ústav mezinárodních vztahů a Česká centra (která jsou členy sdružení EUNIC).
