Lowering hurdles to sport for persons with disabilities

03-12-2020

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities has been marked every 3 December since 1992 to promote awareness and mobilise support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society and development. According to the United Nations, a billion people in the world, 80 % of them in developing countries, live with disabilities today. Globally, an estimated 46 % of people aged 60 and over are among those with disabilities. Moreover, one in every five women and one ...

The International Day of Persons with Disabilities has been marked every 3 December since 1992 to promote awareness and mobilise support for critical issues relating to the inclusion of persons with disabilities in society and development. According to the United Nations, a billion people in the world, 80 % of them in developing countries, live with disabilities today. Globally, an estimated 46 % of people aged 60 and over are among those with disabilities. Moreover, one in every five women and one in every 10 children are likely to experience disability in their lifetime. In the EU, there are over 70 million people with a disability, roughly equivalent to 17.5 % of the total population. This figure is set to rise rapidly over the next decade, given that the EU population is ageing and that more than a third of those over 75 have a disability. Worryingly, people with disabilities are among the hardest hit by Covid-19.

Article 17 du traité FUE: le dialogue des institutions européennes avec les églises, les organisations religieuses et philosophiques

30-11-2020

Sur la base de l’article 17 du traité sur le fonctionnement de l’Union européenne (traité FUE), les institutions européennes organisent annuellement des réunions de haut niveau ou des séminaires de travail et de dialogue avec les églises et les organisations philosophiques et non confessionnelles. Ce dialogue, axé sur des questions figurant à l’ordre du jour européen, découle d’initiatives antérieures, comme celle lancée en 1994 par Jacques Delors, intitulée «Une âme pour l’Europe», qui a ouvert ...

Sur la base de l’article 17 du traité sur le fonctionnement de l’Union européenne (traité FUE), les institutions européennes organisent annuellement des réunions de haut niveau ou des séminaires de travail et de dialogue avec les églises et les organisations philosophiques et non confessionnelles. Ce dialogue, axé sur des questions figurant à l’ordre du jour européen, découle d’initiatives antérieures, comme celle lancée en 1994 par Jacques Delors, intitulée «Une âme pour l’Europe», qui a ouvert la voie à la prise en compte des aspects éthiques et spirituels de l’intégration européenne. Le projet de traité constitutionnel de 2004 contenait des dispositions prévoyant un dialogue régulier, ouvert et transparent entre les institutions européennes et les représentants des églises et des communautés religieuses, ainsi que des associations philosophiques et non confessionnelles. Si le traité constitutionnel a été rejeté par les référendums français et néerlandais, son successeur, le traité de Lisbonne, adopté en 2007 et en vigueur depuis décembre 2009, a repris les mêmes dispositions, qui figurent dans l’article 17 du traité FUE. Le Parlement européen a adopté de nombreuses résolutions visant à défendre les principes de liberté de religion ou de conviction ainsi que la tolérance et le pluralisme religieux, tout en soulignant l’importance d’un dialogue constant entre et avec les communautés religieuses et les associations philosophiques et non confessionnelles. Le Parlement a organisé régulièrement, en vertu de l’article 17 du traité FUE, des sessions de dialogue sur des sujets présentant un intérêt pour l’Union européenne et ses citoyens. La présente publication est une mise à jour d’un briefing publié en janvier 2018.

European Day of Languages: Digital survival of lesser-used languages

23-09-2020

Since 2001, Europe has marked European Day of Languages each year on 26 September, in order to focus attention on its rich linguistic diversity. The European Union boasts 24 official languages, and around 60 regional and minority languages are spoken across the Member States. Europe's linguistic mosaic also includes a variety of sign languages spoken by half a million people, heritage languages such as ancient Greek and Latin, as well as Esperanto – a planned international language created in Europe ...

Since 2001, Europe has marked European Day of Languages each year on 26 September, in order to focus attention on its rich linguistic diversity. The European Union boasts 24 official languages, and around 60 regional and minority languages are spoken across the Member States. Europe's linguistic mosaic also includes a variety of sign languages spoken by half a million people, heritage languages such as ancient Greek and Latin, as well as Esperanto – a planned international language created in Europe. According to the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco), many world languages, including European ones, are endangered and could disappear due to the dominant role of languages such as English with a huge population of native speakers and other learners. Regional and minority languages (RMLs) together with smaller state languages – the 'lesser-used languages' – are under serious threat of extinction. This threat is exacerbated by digital technology. The future of RMLs depends to some extent on their presence in new digital media. Young people communicate and seek information mainly via the internet. If online content is only available in dominant languages, lesser-used languages could become 'digitally extinct'. However, digital technology is not necessarily a death sentence; it can also offer a rescue kit. Online education, online language learning and language technologies can help revitalise endangered languages. To achieve this objective, huge efforts are needed by speakers' communities and language technology specialists to gather data, analyse and process it, in order to create language tools. With such tools, young people can create content in lesser-used languages and expand their use.

European Heritage Days – Women's contribution

15-09-2020

European Heritage Days have helped raise awareness of Europe's rich and diverse heritage. Yet, have they promoted women's contribution to our common heritage sufficiently or highlighted enough the female dimension of the aim to promote diversity?

Creative Europe programme 2021-2027

Having considered the possibility of merging the Creative Europe programme with other programmes supporting European values, rights and justice, the European Commission has decided to continue the Creative Europe programme as a stand-alone programme, increasing its budget by 17 %. The only programme focusing exclusively on cultural and creative activities and enterprises, it falls under the 'Cohesion and values' heading of the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework.

Having considered the possibility of merging the Creative Europe programme with other programmes supporting European values, rights and justice, the European Commission has decided to continue the Creative Europe programme as a stand-alone programme, increasing its budget by 17 %. The only programme focusing exclusively on cultural and creative activities and enterprises, it falls under the 'Cohesion and values' heading of the 2021-2027 multiannual financial framework. The existing programme focuses on the economic dimension of the cultural sector and its contribution to job creation and economic growth. Some stakeholders have voiced concern at taking such a strongly economic approach to culture. Under the proposed programme, the economic dimension is one axis alongside the social dimension, and culture's contribution to international relations. The proposed framework for cultural policy therefore highlights not only the economic dimension of the cultural and creative sectors, but also the role of culture in social cohesion and its relation to creative and artistic freedom and diversity, and freedom and plurality of media. Both Parliament and Council have agreed positions on the proposal, and trilogue negotiations started in autumn 2019 with a view to finding agreement before Council’s first reading. Fourth edition. The 'EU Legislation in Progress' briefings are updated at key stages throughout the legislative procedure.
