DIPLOCAT promotes and disseminates the specificity and diversity of Catalan culture, which it considers one of the main vehicles for conveying soft power through public diplomacy activities. The exchange of ideas, information and artistic expressions; the dissemination of cultural referents; and the restoration of the historical bonds between Catalonia and abroad facilitate mutual understanding and reinforce dialogue among peoples.
One of the most prominent actions in this sphere is the international promotion of the Diada de Sant Jordi (the feast day of Saint George) and its values via the website www.booksandroses.cat. This website is part of a campaign to share information on this Catalan cultural tradition in different languages, and it encompasses all the events outside Catalonia related to the festival of books and roses in a single digital space.
