Communiqué on the Commission’s Communication on “Strengthening European Identity through Education and Culture”


to the European Parliament, the Council, the European Economic and Social Committee and the Committee of the Regions


Culture Action Europe applauds the strong political support shown by all European institutions in their  recognition  that  culture  plays  a  central  role  in  building  a  more  cohesive,  inclusive  and prosperous Europe.


European  leaders  expressed  their  joint  commitment  to  work  towards  a  Union  ‘where  citizens have  new  opportunities  for  cultural  and  social  development’  in  the  2017  Rome  Declaration. Culture Action Europe commends the inclusion of culture and education in the leaders’ agenda during  the  Gothenburg  Summit,  a  welcome  sign  of  their  commitment  to  start  building  a  vision for culture in Europe.


The  European  Commission’s  Communication  on  ‘Strengthening  European  Identity  through Education  and  Culture’  enables  the  implementation  of  this  joint  ambition.  The  launch  of  the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 in Milan was an inspiring moment of unity. The cultural sector  is  determined  to  work  together  with  European  institutions  to  transform  Europe  into  a space where all citizens feel united in diversity.
