Informelles treffen der europäischen kulturminister: "die neue rolle und verantwortlichkeit der kulturminister bei der einleitung des interkulturellen dialogs unter wahrung der kulturellen vielfalt"

In her speech, Ms Stenou declares that cultural diversity “is a forum for lasting and consensus-building dialog between all cultures. We must recognize this daily dialog as a founding principle and seek to preserve it.” She also raises the idea that global cooperation can consolidate the place of culture in these times of globalization, as “it is no longer a matter of globalization allowing cultural diversity to go on developing, but on the contrary, of diversity being the very condition without which globalization could not survive.” (Available in French only)
