Conclusions of the EU Council for Cultural Heritage
Thursday, 22 May 2014 06:15
EU Council Conclusions on Cultural Heritage just adopted!
To: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

For the first time ever, the Council of the European Union has adopted Conclusions on cultural heritage as a strategic resource for a sustainable Europe.

Under the leadership of the Hellenic Presidency of the European Union, the Education, Youth, Culture and Sport Council adopted these historic conclusions at its meeting on 21 May in Brussels.

These conclusions adopt a holistic policy approach by the EU to cultural heritage - tangible, intangible or digital - recognising it as a unique and non-renewable resource and a major asset for Europe and for the entire European project. The conclusions emphasize the important role that cultural heritage plays in creating and enhancing social capital, as well as its important economic impact and its specific role in achieving the Europe 2020 strategy goals for a smart, sustainable and inclusive growth because of its social and economic impact and its key contribution to environmental sustainability.

The conclusions call for more resources to be invested in cultural heritage and for the mainstreaming of cultural heritage in national and European policies. Member States are invited to consider including cultural heritage in the framework of the next Council Work Plan for Culture which will be implemented from 2015 onwards.

The European Commission is also invited to further support at EU level the networking of, and pooling of resources between, public and private sector heritage experts and practitioners as well as civil society organisations.

Europa Nostra wishes to congratulate, also on behalf of other members of the European Heritage Alliance 3.3, the Hellenic Presidency of the EU, and especially the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports, for this major step forward in developing a comprehensive EU strategy for the protection and promotion of our shared cultural heritage, as a strategic resource for a sustainble Europe.

The full text of the conclusions will be posted soon on our website:

21 May World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development
Wednesday, 21 May 2014 18:45

CulturePolis reflecting its goals for the promotion of Cultural Dicersity, celebrates the 21st May World Day for Cultural Diversity by UNESCO.

"Our cultural diversity is a stimulator of creativity. Investing in this creativity can transform societies. It is our responsibility to develop education and intercultural skills in young people to sustain the diversity of our world and to learn to live together in the diversity of our languages, cultures and religions, to bring about change." Irina Bokova, Director-General of UNESCO

In 2001, UNESCO adopted the Universal Declaration on Cultural Diversityand in December 2002, the UN General Assembly, in its resolution57/249, declared May 21 to be the World Day for Cultural Diversity for Dialogue and Development.

The day provides us with an opportunity to deepen our understanding of the values of cultural diversity and to learn to live together better.

On 5 May 2014, the UN General Assembly held a day-long debate on “Culture and sustainable development in the post 2015 development agenda.” Speakers underscored through country level testimonies and global data how culture, in its manifold expressions ranging from cultural heritage to creative industries, from sustainable tourism to cultural infrastructure, drives and enables the social, environmental and economic pillars of sustainable development.
