Culture in the EU’s National Recovery and Resilience Plans

Share

A new document was recently published by Culture Action Europe as part of the #CulturalDealEU campaign, which demands the full inclusion of culture in the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and the European Green Deal, calling on the EU Member States to devote at least 2% of their National Resilience and Recovery Plans (NRRPs) to culture.

In 2020 the European institutions adopted an stimulus package, called Next Generation EU (NGEU), to boost the recovery of the continent after the pandemic crisis and make European economies and societies more sustainable, resilient and better equipped for the green and digital transitions.

The core component of this envelope, called Recovery and Resilience Facility (RRF) is channeled to EU Member States between 2021 and 2026.

The report intends to present the state of play one year after the launch of this campaign; it aims to analyze the types of investments and reforms (if any) are contained in the NRRPs in direct support of the European cultural ecosystem affected harshly by the long crisis and subsequent containment measures.

The publication has been coordinated by Culture Action Europe which, in order to map investments and reforms relevant for culture included in the various NRRPs, mobilised its wide membership to get an overview of the different types of interventions, as well as the budget mobilised to this end.
