FOR the "GREENING" of THE EU CULTURE AND EDUCATION PROGRAMMES

Culture and education play a key role in driving the societal change we must achieve. We can use the programmes smartly to contribute to the wider environmental objectives.

Cultures

Theme - Culture

It is essential to promote cultural and linguistic diversity, which forms the wealth of our continent, our history, our cities and our territories. It makes us what we are.

EU’s actions undertaken in the 1990’s must be sustained and amplified. This is contributing to the flowering of the Member states cultures, respecting their national and regional diversity and, at the same time, bringing the common cultural heritage to the fore.

Faced to its extra-European competitors economical power, the creative sector must be encouraged; European states must keep their public subvention system to the cinema and the audiovisual sector.

Our commitments 

Every day the EDP defends its ideas through various actions and asserts its positions. For example:

  • In the European Parliament: 
    Laurence Farreng, Member of the European Parliament, defends our ideas in the Committee on Culture and Education.
  • In our Manifesto: 
    We have been defending these proposals for several years. They were already at the heart of our programme in 2004
