Press: Euronews Op-Ed “What we need is a Cultural Deal for Europe”

As part of our ongoing Cultural Deal for Europe campaign Lars Ebert, Secretary-General of Culture Action Europe, alongside partners Secretary-General of Europa Nostra, Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović and Director of the European Cultural Foundation, 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.
