EESC Public hearing on international cultural relations

The European Economic and Social Committee organised a public hearing on the Joint Communication “Towards an EU strategy for international cultural relations”.

The EESC is particularly calling for:
– action plans to be defined, in order to ensure the concrete implementation of the Joint Communication;
– involving actors from the whole civil society, not only artists and cultural operators; and more generally for culture to be recognised as the 4th pillar of sustainable development.
