Abstract: This year, the European Union celebrates the tenth anniversary since the adoption of the first ‘European Agenda for Culture in a Globalising World’ (2007). Since then, the cultural and the creative sectors have taken an increasingly prominent place in European Union policymaking as a key driver of growth and job creation, enhancing creativity and innovation as well as fostering a sense of belonging and cohesion among citizens. However, mapping cultural and creative assets and measuring their impact in a systematic and comparable way across Europe remains a challenge, with no shared definitions or metrics, particularly at city level. The Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor provides a reliable common evidence base designed to help national, regional and municipal policy makers identify local strengths and opportunities, to promote mutual exchange and learning between cities and to inspire fit-for-purpose policies to boost economic development and strengthen resilience.
