It is present in all media at the moment: This week the EU will hold its extraordinary budget summit at which the heads of state will discuss the future budget of the EU for the years 2014-2020. Already in the forefront, it is discussed how and where to cut the proposed budget of the EU Commission. In its negotiation box the Cyprus Presidency suggests to cut all budgets horizontally.
Because the budget for the proposed Creative Europe programme is already very small it should not be cut at all.
Therefore, you can send a letter that was formulated in the frame of the "we are more campaign" to your heads of state before the upcoming EU summit.
You only have to sign the online Form on www.wearemore.eu.
Some facts and figures to support our argument:
The proposed EU budget for the seven year period is 1033 billion Euro. The proposed budget for Creative Europe is part of the heading 3 "citizenship, freedom, security and justice". As you can see Creative Europe is part of a heading that already is only 1,82% of the total proposed budget.
