Culture, sports and non-profit work

The cultural sector should be diverse, strong and independent. Culture expands our understanding of ourselves and the society in which we live. Sport and physical activity have great intrinsic value. Top-level and recreational sports should complement one another. The voluntary sector is important for both individuals and society as a whole.
