e nLet the countdown begin! The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 is coming! The European Commission published its detailed proposal today.
Europa Nostra stands ready to actively and creatively support the preparation of the year now. We are working with our members and supporters from across Europe together to make the European Year of Cultural Heritage a memorable one for citizens in Europe and beyond. Civil society should be at the heart of shaping this Year. It should not have an end – on the contrary, it should be the start of something more, more Europe and more passion for cultural heritage!
