During its Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Hungary intends to support the protection of cultural diversity

During its Presidency of the Council of the European Union, Hungary wishes to support the protection of cultural diversity. Hungary sees active citizenship, the encouragement of civil organizations, and volunteering as the key element of this. According to the EU website, "With respect to the implementation of the Europe 2020 strategy, the objective of the Hungarian Presidency will be to discover the areas and instruments where culture could contribute to meeting European economic and growth targets."

The website also states that Hungary will focus on mobility during its Presidency. "Hungary wishes to promote research to define the factors that impede the mobility of artists and other cultural experts. Budapest would like to establish an information system as well, which supports their mobility. On the issue of museum art collections, the main event of the Presidency will be the series of training and presentation events organized by the Hungarian Museum of Fine Arts in the framework of the project called Collections Mobility 2.0."
