The New European Agenda for Culture

On 22 May 2018, the new Agenda for Culture was adopted by the European Commission.

The new Agenda includes an action plan on Cultural Heritage. NEMO especially approves of the action plan as it looks beyond the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and affirms Cultural Heritage to be an important part of culture and society.

Among the main items proposed in the Agenda for Culture are

  • Harness the power of culture and cultural diversity for social cohesion and well-being, by promoting cultural participation, mobility of artists and protection of heritage
  • Support jobs and growth in the cultural and creative sectors, by promoting arts and culture in education, boosting relevant skills, and encouraging innovation in culture
  • Strengthen international cultural relations, by making the most of the potential of culture to foster sustainable development and peace
