Big steps into the future
We are determined to do whatever it takes to keep European cooperation and solidarity intact.
We believe in a Europe that is shaped with and for everyone who lives here.
All our different languages, cultural habits, collective memories, beliefs and perspectives may differ. At the same time, we are all facing the same challenges, for generations to come: climate crises, growing inequalities, polarization and not least, the effects of the corona pandemic.
The European environment is complex and dynamic. It forces us to constantly adapt to new perspectives and approaches. Collaboration and sharing are key. The only way to break fear and isolation is to bring people together. Culture has the power to do that.
We have pioneered in shaping Europe as a cultural community ever since we were founded in 1954. Today, our mission is as urgent as ever before. This is a moment to re-think, re-build and re-organise the way we live together and care for each other.
Europe is at a crossroad. We are determined to do whatever it takes to keep European cooperation and solidarity intact.
The future of Europe begins today, and you can help shape it.
