A Cultural Deal for Europe A central place for culture in the EU’s post-pandemic future
We are pleased to share with you an important follow-up to the “Cultural Deal for Europe” online debate, which took place on 18 November hosted jointly by Europa Nostra, also on behalf of the European Heritage Alliance, Culture Action Europe and the European Cultural Foundation. The aim of this successful online event was to discuss the strategic ways of putting culture where it belongs: at the heart of the European project.
On November 18, more than 500 viewers followed the high-profile online discussion with contributions by representatives of EU institutions, Member States, major pan-European cultural and heritage networks as well as civil society. Based on the fruitful and inspiring discussions held on this occasion, the three organising partners have launched today a Joint Statement entitled A Cultural Deal for Europe: A central place for culture in the EU’s post-pandemic future.
We are pleased to share with you this Joint Statement, calling EU and national policymakers to commit to anambitious #CulturalDealEU, an umbrella strategy for reviving and re-imagining Europe through culture and cultural heritage.
Our Joint Statement puts forward an overarching and transversal Cultural Deal for Europe, including a series of concrete proposals for realising the potential of culture and heritage as major forces in the EU’s socio-economic recovery and its long-term future.
