The Council has published its common position of 20 April 1995 on a Commission proposal for a European Parliament and Council Decision establishing 1996 as the "European Year of Lifelong Learning". The main purpose of the proposal is to provide information on, create awareness of and promote lifelong learning, and to proclaim 1996 as the "European Year of Lifelong Learning". In its common position, the Council kept the fundamental features of the proposal but put forward the following amendments: - It drafted a new Article 6 specifying a financial appropriation of ECU 8 million, which was the amount provided for in the Commission's financial statement; - It elaborated on the content of Article 2 by providing for eight themes incorporating and enlarging on the four objectives in the original proposal.
