All the signatories agreed on, within the area of their competence and possibilities:
WE WILL PROMOTE THE DIALOGUE, AND WORK WITH ALL RELEVANT SECTORS WITHIN EACH TOPIC
(including public authorities, private and social organizations, civil society, and the Academia) in the formulation, implementation and assessment of all time-related policies, programmes and initiatives; and seek coherence between them.
WE WILL ENCOURAGE INTERDEPARTMENTAL AND CROSS-SECTOR COORDINATION
at international, European, national, regional, municipal and community levels, working to integrate time policy considerations into social, gender, economic and environmental policies, programmes and initiatives, including the ones related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), the European Green Deal, the European Social Pillar and the “Future of Europe” Process.
WE WILL PROMOTE, CONDUCT AND SHARE RELEVANT RESEARCH ON TIME USE FROM ALL FIELDS
in order to contribute to the existing knowledge, find a higher integration between research and time policies. For this we will further cooperate with the International Association for Time Use Research (IATUR) and work together for the creation of the European Academy of Time Policies.
