Europe's rich cultural heritage and dynamic cultural and creative sectors are a part of European identity. These sectors fully contribute to the Union's economic development, generating jobs and growth, and are thus key for Europe's future.

The Creative Europe programme 2021-2027 constitutes a unique platform for coordinated and constructive support to them across the continent. Through the many activities and projects it will fund, the proposal will be a key enabler to reinforce European cultural and creative sectors, and to unlock their full potential in an economic, social and international perspective.

The European Economic and Social Committee's Consultative Commission on Industrial Change (CCMI) organizes a Public Hearing on 23.10.2018 (09.30-13.00) on Europe Creative Programme.

The hearing is part of the preparation of an opinion on Europe Creative Programme following the referral from the Council.

The rights and principles forming the European Pillar of Social Rights fall into three areas, one of which is social protection and inclusion, which is to say everything touching upon living conditions in our society.

The 20th and final principle of the European Pillar of Social Rights deals with "access to essential services". It establishes the right to essential services of good quality and gives a non-comprehensive list of those services most important to people's daily lives. The Member States continue to be responsible for identifying, organising, providing and funding these services at national, regional or local level. However, it is not enough simply to state that essential services – including services across borders – must be universally available; the notion of essential services and how they can be delivered must be clarified.
