With assistance from the European Commission, the Czech Presidency and the Member States have created the work plan. The primary issues facing the cultural and creative sectors today are outlined, along with objectives and solutions. To put the Work Plan into action, the Member States, the Commission, and the Council Presidency will work closely together.

It also sets out 21 actions covering specific issues such as: the working conditions of artists; the role of culture for health and well-being; access to culture, cultural participation and democracy; the role of libraries; the sectors’ green and digital transitions; culture, cultural heritage and climate change; quality built environment; international cultural relations, including Ukraine.
