The vision of the Cultural Heritage Strategy emphasises the role of cultural heritage as a resource for society and as a provider of a better quality of life to people. The aim is to support and promote everyone's right to cultural heritage. The objectives and measures are divided into four themes, 16 objectives and 54 policy guidelines.
The four themes of the Government resolution are:
- Cultural heritage as ours and everyone’s
- Cultural heritage, nature and climate change
- Cultural heritage, learning, competence and research
- Cultural heritage and the economy
The Strategy will serve as a tool for the implementation of the Faro Convention of the Council of Europe and contribute to the achievement of the goals of the United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
The drawing up of the Strategy will also implement the New European Agenda for Culture proposed by the European Commission in 2018. In the Agenda, Member States are urged to draw up their own strategies in the field of cultural heritage.
The Ministry of Education and Culture is in the process of drawing up an implementation roadmap for the objectives and policy guidelines of the strategy. The roadmap will be put together in cooperation with different sectors and stakeholders. It will provide a concrete framework and set clear priorities for the timetable, implementation method, responsible parties and resourcing of the agreed policies.
