Applications welcome to a Voices of Culture on the green transition and energy crisis

The next Voices of Culture dialogue will highlight how Culture and Creative Sectors and Industries are driving the green transition and facing the energy crisis. Applications from representatives of organisations with relevant expertise are accepted until 3 May 2023.

Voices of Culture, the platform for dialogue offered to civil society by the European Commission, is inviting interested organisations from EU member states to apply to participate in the structured dialogue. The call refers to a 2022 report from the Open Method of Coordination (OMC) group of EU Member States that underlines the importance of integrating the role of culture and the creative industries into Europe’s sustainable development action. NEMO encourages museum professionals to apply to the opportunity to ensure that the potential of museums as strong partners in the green transition is fully tapped.

The call is open to representatives of the cultural and creative sectors and other relevant sectors with relevant expertise on the topic. This fourth Voices of Culture topic 2021-2023 will reflect on the state of the art and generate recommendations for policy and actions for decision-makers.

Successful applicants will be invited to a Brainstorming meeting in the European Capital of Culture 2024, Tartu in Estonia, on 15 and 16 June 2023.

After the Brainstorming meeting the selected participants will jointly write a Brainstorming report of around 20-30 pages reflecting on their discussions and recommendations for decision makers on this topic. The report will be presented to the European Commission at a Dialogue meeting on 12 September 2023 in Brussels.
