About More Europe

Modern diplomacy requires the development of new thinking and skills to face global challenges and changing societies. A new European approach towards external relations, based on the promotion of fundamental values, two-way dialogue, and the recognition of the role of civil society is urgently needed.

MORE EUROPE - external cultural relations is a cultural civil initiative, composed of a public-private partnership of foundations, civil society networks and national cultural institutes, whose objective is to convince politicians and policy-makers to place cultural relations – one of the strongest assets that Europe has - in the heart of the EU’s external affairs.
