It is essential to promote cultural and linguistic diversity, which forms the wealth of our continent, our history, our cities and our territories. It makes us what we are.
EU’s actions undertaken in the 1990’s must be sustained and amplified. This is contributing to the flowering of the Member states cultures, respecting their national and regional diversity and, at the same time, bringing the common cultural heritage to the fore.
