Minority SafePack Initiative

The Minority SafePack Initiative, otherwise known as 1 million signatures project was approved by the European Commission on 3rd April 2017. The main objective of this campaign was to strengthen the EU’s cultural and linguistic diversity whilst protecting minority individuals in the European Union within certain legislative frameworks. Towards this target, main headings were identified according to priorities and a booklet containing a presentation of the campaign and minorities’ demands were presented. The booklet will be translated to all EU languages and then distributed to the FUEN members. The main headings of the booklet are; 1. Protection, 2. Language, Education and Culture, 3. Regional Policy, 4. Participation, 5. Equality, 6. Audio- Visual and other Media Content, 7. Support for Minority Communities. Under each heading, problems of the minorities were explained and proposals for legal steps to be taken were included. The deadline for the campaign was emphasised as 1 year later – April 2018. At the end of this time period, the signatures collected from all the minorities will be presented to the EU Commission, in order for steps to be taken for the recommended legislations in the booklet. Each Minority institution in its region has plenty of time to collect signatures and organise various events to promote the campaign.

At the last session of the same day, institution representatives from minorities in Romania described "Contribution of Local Minorities to European Cultural Heritage". After the sessions all participants took a walking tour and were introduced to Cluj-Napoca.
