The Bonn Declaration examines how the UNESCO Seoul Agenda, Goals for the
Development of Arts Education
EN.pdf> can be applied to the field of music in Europe. It reflects common
focal points for the development of music education in Europe. It
acknowledges the principle of subsidiarity and calls upon political decision
makers at local, regional, national and European level to define common
policies that promote the development of music education in Europe at all
levels and to put these policies into practice. On the other hand, it is
directed at music education institutions and music education practitioners
themselves, offering them a matrix for self-reflection, reviewing the goals
and checking whether they are applicable.
We would also like to turn to you with a request to help in translating the
Declaration to your own language. In doing so, you would greatly help the
EMC in further disseminating the Bonn Declaration throughout Europe.
If you are able to help, please get in touch with us to coordinate
translations and we will be happy to assist you in every possible way.
Thank you in advance and best regards,
