8. Creativity and culture
This chapter gives an overview of youth policy in the field of creativity and culture and the different programmes and offers. Luxembourgish youth policy (outlined in the 2008 law on youth) defines the promotion of young people’s sense of initiative, creativity and spirit of initiative as major objectives.
Besides the cultural initiatives within formal education, cultural policy for young people mainly focuses on the field of non-formal education and youth work. The National Youth Service is the main public authority in charge of the implementation of programmes and projects in the field of creativity and culture. Projects deal with various issues such as artistic, audiovisual, or technological and entrepreneurial topics.
