Findhere the written version of the speech given by Damien Helly at the European Parliament’s public hearing on EU international cultural relations in Brussels on 13 July 2022. It summarises culture Solutions’ analyses on the implementation of the EU cultural relations policy framework and suggests a set of priorities for the EU Council Work Plan on Culture 2022-2025.
culture Solutions was launched in a context of uncertainty and questioning of the European integration project, while technological change is affecting the ways Humanity deals with an ecologically threatened planet.
At the crossroads of these challenges, the work of culture Solutions focuses on 5 priority themes:
- Cultural action & legitimacy
- Digital and Internet governance
- Cultural relations
- Cultural diplomacy
- Intercultural coexistence & language skills
