Today, the Education, Science and Culture Committee of the Baltic Assembly discusses digitalisation and online accessibility of cultural materials in the Baltic States at its meeting in Tartu.

Vice Chair of the BA Education, Science and Culture Committee Krista Aru said that the three Baltic States were united by the European Year of Cultural Heritage, and within this framework, the BA discussed digitalisation and online accessibility of cultural materials. “Why is this important? Because in our times, only better understanding of each other’s culture creates preconditions for cooperation in the spheres of environment, economy and education,” emphasised Aru.

Another important range of issues to be discussed is also connected with culture. “I believe that the Education, Science and Culture Committee of the BA will give its approval to the birth of the Baltic Culture Fund that has been prepared by the Ministers of Culture of the three countries,” Aru said.

Protection of cultural heritage in the Baltic States will also be discussed at the meeting.

Representatives of the Nordic Council and the ministries of culture of the three Baltic States as well as experts of the field participate in the meeting held at the Estonian National Museum. The Riigikogu (Parliament of Estonia) is represented by members of the Cultural Affairs Committee Krista Aru and Toomas Jürgenstein.
