On founding the Center for Music Ecosystems, Shain Shapiro, Ph.d. and CEO of Sound Diplomacy, is working on a tool to better monitor and evaluate the impacts of music. In doing so, he is working with cities across the Nordics and around the world on looking at how investing in music can improve education, reduce crime and support cohesion.

In this presentation, he introduces his framework for doing so, its strengths, limitations and challenges.

The Center for Music Ecosystems is a global not-for-profit organisation focused on understanding and advancing music ecosystems to foster more sustainable communities.

Sound Diplomacy is a global team of researchers, data analysts, economists and strategic consultants, with extensive expertise in the music industry, music economics, cultural planning and placemaking.
