BOE Newsflash


The European Capitals of Culture initiative was launched in 1985 and over 40 cities have been designated since then. The current programme will end in 2019 and as the E.C. feels that it has definitely served its purpose, a new one has been approved to continue the programme for the years 2020-2033.

The aim of the action is to promote greater mutual understanding between European citizens and to strengthen the feeling of European citizenship, simultaneously highlighting the richness of European cultures and both their diversity and their shared features. The initiative – which will be financed from the Creative Europe Programme – has proved to have a positive impact in terms of media response, local development, tourism and recognition by the inhabitants of the importance of their selected city.
