Since 2020, INP has been one of 47 actors participating in the Brainstorming group: “Voice of Culture Structured Dialogue between the European Commission and the Cultural sector”. The selected participants were representative of culture in its diversity, including heritage. https://voicesofculture.eu/2020/10/16/participants-culture-and-the-sustainable-development-goals-challenges-and-opportunities/
INP has participated in debates regarding culture and decent work, economic growth and employment and has expressed recommendations to the European Commission, to promote the sustainability of culture itself and the contribution of culture to sustainable development goals.
Through this participation the INP aims help the discussing about sustainability and culture move forward.
