Cultural awareness and expression handbook

‘Cultural awareness and expression’ is one of the eight key competences that form the reference tool which EU Member States integrate into strategies and infrastructure in the context of lifelong learning.

The definition of the competence is based on the assumption that a solid understanding of one’s own culture and a sense of identity can be the basis for an open-minded attitude towards others and respect for diversity of cultural expression.
