Education, Youth and Culture

Education, unlike certain other policies, remains within the competence of national states. In the field of culture, the subsidiarity principle is kept and competences are shared.
 
Therefore, the European Union primarily has an advisory capacity in this field and enables Member States to cooperate with one another. Sessions of the Education, Youth and Culture Council are divided into two parts: culture and audiovisual affairs, and education and youth.

These sessions are attended by the ministers responsible for the relevant government departments of the 27 EU Member States. In the first half of the year, the formal Council is usually convened twice to discuss education and youth and once to discuss culture. In addition, ministers meet at informal sessions, the number and agenda of which are set by the country holding the Presidency.
