European Cultural Convention

Relating to where we live



"I really enjoy making new friends who have a very different home life than me"
Johan Smitt, Schoolboy, Germany

Intercultural Cities

This network helps local authorities which have joined it to manage cultural diversity. It encourages mixing and interaction between diverse groups in the public sphere in order to foster cohesion and develops tools to deal with cultural conflict.

Landscape Convention

Urban or rural, the landscape is our living, natural and cultural heritage, be it ordinary or outstanding. The Convention promotes high-quality architectural and urban design and enables citizens and associations to play an active role in the protection and management of their environment. It has been ratified by 38 Council of Europe member states.

Democratic Governance

The Council of Europe helps local and regional authorities become more efficient, accountable and transparent. For example, the programmes run by the Centre of Expertise for Local Government Reform deal with public ethics, leadership development, local finances and inter-municipal co-operation.
