Oulu2026 ECoC Conference
on 12th–14th March 2019

Can ECoC save the world?

We warmly welcome you to the Oulu2026 ECoC Conference on 12th–14th March 2019!

Europe and the European Union are facing big challenges in the future - climate change, migration, Brexit and the new economy. The European Capital of Culture (ECoC) is not only about culture; it is about citizens’ participation, cultural rights, mobility of artists, new innovations, audience development, sustainable development, cultural diversity, new urban culture, collaborations between new partners, and reaching better mutual understanding.

Is ECoC The Answer? Can we use ECoC as a tool for city development and for making a better future for Europe? What impacts can the ECoC have in a city and is the legacy long term?

Join us and let's save the world with ECoC!
