Education, Youth and Culture Council: extracts from the joint press conference (culture) by Christine Albanel, Leonard Orban and Viviane Reding

202 views

Christine Albanel, French Minister for Culture and Communication and President in office of the Council of the EU, chaired the Council of the EU Ministers for Culture and Audiovisual, who adopted several important texts negotiated by the French Presidency in the recent months. The Ministers adopted the proposed European heritage label, whose aim is to reinforce Europeans' sense of sharing a common European heritage. The Ministers then emphasised the cultural dimension of multilingualism. They expressed the desire to coordinate and reinforce their actions to promote translation, the subtitling of live performances and the subtitling of audiovisual works and films. The Ministers also adopted the conclusions on the promotion of intercultural dialogue and cultural and linguistic diversity in the external relations of the European Union, with a view to reinforcing the role of culture in relations with non-EU countries and the international dissemination of European cultural and audiovisual goods and services. The EU Ministers adopted conclusions on the contribution of architecture to sustainable development, in developing an approach going beyond technical standards in terms of overall, economic, social, cultural and environmental objectives. The session on audiovisual matters saw the ministers reach an agreement on supporting and ensuring the durability and development of the proposed European digital library. This library, launched today at the end of the Council, will make over two million documents (books, archives, collections from European museums) accessible to all. Lastly, the ministers unanimously approved draft conclusions on developing the range of cultural and creative content legally available online and preventing and combating piracy in the digital environment. The 27 Member States also recalled that the right balance must be struck between the protection of personal data, the freedom of expression, and the protection of intellectual property.
