Last week, the Slovenian Presidency of the Council of the European Union presented its priorities to the Committees of the European Parliament. The Committee on Culture and Education (CULT) was told that the Slovenian Presidency will work on the areas of creativity, cultural rights and the right to heritage.
“The focus will be on two topics: the innovative potential of culture, with an emphasis on high-quality construction and architecture, and the competitiveness of European audiovisual and media content in the global digital market. The first topic has an important connection to the New European Bauhaus initiative, whose goal is to improve the living environment in cities and rural areas using architectural solutions. In designing sustainable solutions and the EU’s development breakthrough, we must not overlook the importance of cultural heritage and its diversity in the EU”, the Slovenian Presidency explains on its website.
