Designing the future - public consultation by Culture 2000

Designing the future programme of cultural cooperation for the European Union after 2006 - public consultation

The European Commission has launched a new phase of consultation for the development of a future cultural European programme. This will replace the existing Culture 2000 programme when it ends. The results of the consultation will feed into the legislative proposal for a new programme that the Commission will prepare this year.

This consultation runs from 10 April 2003 to 10 July 2003.
All interested parties are invited to participate in the public debate by responding to the questions specified in the discussion paper available below and transmitting their written contributions by 10 July 2003.

You are strongly encouraged to send your replies to the consultation via a web-based online response form.
In order to prepare your reply, we suggest that you carefully read the discussion paper. Chapter III of this document addresses the main themes for the consultation :

  • the tasks of the European Union
  • European added value of the action
  • the visibility of EU action
  • the nature of EU action
  • inter-institutional cooperation
  • the European cultural industries
