Open Letter to EC President Tusk Emphasises the Importance of Culture for the Future of Europe

In the course of a Culture Action Europe campaign, NEMO has sent an open letter to Donald Tusk, President of the European Council, calling for making culture, and museums, an integral part of the future of Europe at the upcoming summit on 9 May 2019 in Sibiu, Romania. Culture Action Europe initiated the campaign and urges more cultural networks and organisations to join.

At his 2017 State of the European Union address, President Juncker unveiled a roadmap detailing the main steps towards a more united, stronger and more democratic Union. Building on this, national leaders met in Tallinn, Estonia, and agreed on a Leaders' Agenda - a list of the most pressing issues and challenges for which solutions should be found, ahead of the European elections in 2019. On 9 May 2019, at a summit in Sibiu, Romania, national leaders are expected to mark the culmination of this process with a renewed commitment to an EU that delivers on the issues that really matter to people.

NEMO supports Culture Action Europe’s plea for making culture an integral part of the future of Europe. Read the open letter to President Tusk, signed by NEMO, here.
