The Games represent an effective tool for preservation of cultural heritage, search for and support of young talent, civil, patriotic and aesthetic guidance for the young generation, assistance in spiritual formation of young people, assistance in intercultural dialog and development of cultural diversity.

At the same time, the Delphic Games also determine the vector for development of cultural codes.

What is the cultural code, and why is it necessary?

Where did the idea of the cultural code come from? How and when did we realize that we needed it?

If we understand the cultural code as unique cultural peculiarities that each nation inherits from its ancestors, some kind of coded information that allows to identify the culture, then what role do the Delphic Games play as a cultural project aimed at protecting the cultural heritage of world nations?

The participants in the panel discussion will seek to answer this and many other questions.

Reference Information: Currently a total of 115 countries take part in the work of the International Delphic Committee (with the headquarters in Moscow).
