Exhibition

Exhibition on the 60th Anniversary of the European Cultural Convention


The aim of this exhibition is to give you an insight into what the Council of Europe does in these areas and how it helps to strengthen democracy and human rights across Europe and beyond.

"We believe in diversity as a force for democracy and encourage dialogue as a means of building peace."

The Council of Europe is the leading human rights Organisation in Europe. It has 47 member states, 28 of which are members of the European Union.

Culture plays a key part in understanding other people and respecting diversity. That is why the Council of Europe in 1954 adopted the European Cultural Convention, which organises co-operation throughout Europe in the areas of culture, education, youth, sport, languages and the transmission of common values.
