With this debate, the ECO section is providing ex-ante input to the European Commission, in preparation for the upcoming 2023 strategic foresight cycle that wants to shed light on the strategic decisions needed to ensure a socially and economically sustainable Europe with a stronger role in the world in the coming decades.
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.
