Resolution 2488 (2023) of the Parliamentary Assembly of the CoE

The Cultural Routes of the Council of Europe are a platform for intercultural dialogue. The attached Resolution 2488 (2023) is adopted by the Standing Committee, acting on behalf of the Assembly, on 3 March 2023 and shows the importance of the Cultural Routes.


This document not only highlights the value of the Cultural Routes in multi quality layers, but it also makes a clear appeal to national and regional governments to provide adequate support to the Routes. This is difficult, because this level often hardly recognize themselves as responsible.
In this respect, it is to be welcomed that - even if only under point 6 - an appeal is made to the EU. This certainly concerns the EU Parliament as well as the EU Commission in the same way.
Ultimately, it is the - perhaps thus facilitated - access to the various funding programs that is so important for most cultural routes.
