Cultural marketing evolved from a set of techniques borrowed from the commercial sector to a relationship-based marketing. This translates into an original, bespoke, and meaningful cultural experience provided to the consumer, while staying true to the objectives advocated by each cultural organization. This article is a literature review aimed at highlighting key phases in the development of marketing in the arts and the cultural events sector. Additionally, the paper analyses some of the challenges that cultural organizations face amidst recent social, economic, and political developments worldwide, such as the Covid-19 pandemic, the aging of the population, or the integration of technology, to name a few. Monitoring these phenomena and adapting marketing strategies to confront the effects of major changes is crucial to the survival and development of cultural entities.

Annually, globally in developing areas, approximately 21 million adolescent girls between the ages of 15 and 19 become pregnant, and about 12 million of them give birth. These data do not include the pregnancies of adolescents who have abortions (Nanu, Stativa, Valceanu, Otelea, n.a.). The main cause of mortality in females, the age group 15-19 years is represented by complications during pregnancy and childbirth (World Health Organization, 2020; Neal, Matthews, Frost, Fogstad, Camacho, & Laski, 2012).

The nature of work is certainly changing, but from a historical perspective this is not new. The rate of change is faster today, and change is the rule not just an exception over time. This paper shows that an Internet-based business model is becoming more common, and this does not mean the end of organizational employment relationships, but supports the need for greater flexibility of jobs and workers. The study of work and employment, as well as the variability of wider environmental and contextual changes in the nature of paid work and employment relations, are relevant to the functioning of a modern economy. Providing an overview of key trends can help to understand the nature of labor relations in the modern economy. The paper presents examples of both change and continuity in the field of work relations.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a devastating impact on businesses, regardless of the sector they operate in, and the long-term recovery is still unclear. The pandemic has led businesses, large and small, to analyze more carefully the environment and the way their employees work. Although OSH requirements have been in place for many years, the pandemic has helped increase recognition of the importance of worker safety, health and well-being in any workplace. Organizations' human and financial resources are increasingly limited. As a result, the available resources must be used economically and efficiently, to avoid, eliminate or control the dangers and risks derived from them. Managers direct all activities of an enterprise and the results contribute to its safety culture. Safety is driven by culture, and management creates organizational culture, so everything that happens or does not happen in terms of safety practice is a reflection of an organization's culture. Sustainable growth encourages organizations to continuously improve all aspects of their business. In the vast majority of organizations, there is no advanced safety culture, so convincing management that safety should be one of the organization's core values is a must-achieve.
