EUROCITIES Culture Forum explores emerging trends in cultural education in Oulu

EUROCITIES Culture forum members met in Oulu, Finland on October 5-7 to share knowledge about cultural education and culture for children. They adopted a number of concrete recommendations to cities.


 Cultural heritage

Whilst cultural heritage has been defined as something inherited from the past, it is in many ways a contemporary and “living” cultural resource in Europe. 
 Cultural and creative industries

The economic contribution of the cultural and creative sector (CCS) in the European Union in general and to regional development in particular is widely acknowledged.
 Culture for social inclusion

Culture-led development strategies have direct and indirect impacts on social inclusion, social innovation and intercultural dialogue.
