General Information about culture for Meeting Planners and Prospective Clients.
Culture is something human beings are immersed in since their early childhood. It comes in many shapes and forms, encompassing social behavior, societal norms, knowledge, beliefs, arts, laws, customs, and more. As humans, we are exposed to culture through learning processes and socialization which lead to a wide diversity of cultural forms and practices across societies worldwide. However, scientists have also identified cultural universals that are found in all human societies, including certain forms of art, music, dance, religion, or technology.
Culture is strongly connected to change. Researchers have identified 29 ways in which cultural change can be brought about, including growth, evolution, development, reform, innovation, mutation, progress, or modernization. Nowadays, humanity is experiencing almost constant cultural change due to the expansion of mass media, the rise of international forms of collaboration such as commerce, and perhaps most importantly, the massive population growth that incessantly drives the emergence of new cultural forms. In addition, technological development can also create societal changes by modifying social dynamics and promoting new cultural models. While culture has traditionally been seen as requiring a certain level of sophistication in the arts, education, or sciences, the emergence of popular or mass culture in the 20th century has led to a strong de-elitization of culture, making it available to all social spheres.
