European Committee of Regions.

A pluralistic and innovative vision of culture key to strengthening European identity

European Committee of Regions (CoR) is set to adopt a motion to recognise the role of culture in strengthening economic, social and territorial cohesion in Europe rather than being seen as a purely sector-centred policy.

The committee also acknowledges the contribution of culture and cultural diversity to sustainable development and pledges to work at local and regional levels to reach the goal set by 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Culture should have a more prominent position in the political agenda of EU and its multi-annual budget should provide more support for the management, use and development of cultural heritage.
