Public culture is a cultural form formed to meet the common needs of society, where everyone can participate in culture, enjoy culture, and create culture. A good public culture can not only enhance the happiness of residents, but also cultivate one's character through moral cultivation. Moreover, it can improve the charm, vitality, self-confidence and cohesion of the city, and promote the cultural exchanges between the city and the outside world. The more developed the economy is, the more powerful the country is, the more it attaches importance to the construction of Urban culture. Public culture is the basic culture of a city and has far-reaching significance in shaping Urban culture.
Social services refer to activities in the fields of education, medical and health care, elderly care, childcare, housekeeping, culture, tourism, sports, and other social sectors that rely on diverse entities to provide services to meet the multi-level and diverse needs of the people. They are related to the most direct and practical interests of the general public. There is an essential difference between social services and for-profit commercial services, as they are welfare services.
PCSS explores how to make society develop better and people feel happier by discussing the relationship between public culture and social services.
The specific content, activities, and services provided by public culture need to be adapted to the level of social development and supply capacity, and therefore are dynamically adjusted, up-to-date, and tailored to local conditions.
Public culture involves a wide range of social undertakings, including ideology, culture, news and publishing, radio and television, as well as national fitness, popular science, and mass rule of law cultural activities.
Social services belong to the basic public services provided by the government, which is the most prominent feature of public culture compared to other cultural types and forms, and also the theoretical basis for forming a policy system for public cultural services.
Public culture and social services interact with each other, and to a certain extent, public culture determines the type of social services, which in turn affects the development of public culture.
