Forthcoming policy developments

In September 2020, the Government adopted the Implementation Plan for the Period 2020–2021 of the Resolution on the National Youth Programme 2013–2022 (Izvedbeni načrt Resolucije o Nacionalnem programu za mladino 2013–2022 za leti 2020 in 2021). The Implementation Plan does not contain any measure (project, public tender or policy) in the field of culture and creativity. Therefore, no funds are provided for this field.

Ongoing debates

A Resolution on the 2018–2025 National Programme for Culture was in preparation but was never adopted. Thus, Slovenia is currently without a valid strategic document in the field of culture. A new Resolution on the 2020–2027 National Programme for Culture was also is in preparation, but as well unsuccessfully. The National Programme for Culture 2021-2028 (Nacionalni program za kulturo 2021-2028) is currently under preparation.

The Draft of Strategy of Design (Osnutek strategije s področja oblikovanja) was also in preparation, but was never adopted. The current status of the validity of the strategy is unknown; the draft is no longer available on the website of the Ministry of Culture. Nor is there yet news about whether or not the strategy is planning to be adopted or not. The strategy foreseed measures for youth in the field of education, as it aims for improvement of competences in design.
