The Committee for Knowledge and Culture in the Nordic Region works on issues and cases affecting culture, research and education, primary and secondary schools, adult education and general education – including matters of language co-operation, new media, skills enhancement and innovation in study programmes.
In many senses, education and information are the path to a good life – at work and at home for people of all ages – protecting them to an extent from the threat of unemployment, poverty, abuse, etc.
The Committee also deals with civil society and the volunteer sector, both of which play important roles in a democratic welfare state. Sport, languages, film and media, general and diverse arts and culture, children’s and youth culture also fall within the remit of the Committee for Knowledge and Culture in the Nordic Region.
