“We need a Cultural Deal for Europe!” op-ed on Euronews

11 Jun 2024

As part of our ongoing Cultural Deal for Europe campaign Lars Ebert, Secretary-General of Culture Action Europe, Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović, Secretary-General of Europa Nostra, and our Director André Wilkens wrote an op’ed published on Euronews:

To counter inequality, populism, climate change and technological advances, the role of culture and heritage must be elevated on the political agenda and in public opinion. This is a call to action rooted in hard facts.”

Culture is not just about preserving heritage or the arts; it challenges the status quo by providing a space for diverse voices to be heard, countering narratives that fuel division and extremism, which often lead to violence and hatred.

You can learn more about the campaign, and how to support it, via the dedicated campaign website:
