We are pleased to inform that the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission has awarded the HEURIGHT Public Seminar “Cultural Heritage, Cultural Rights & the European Union” (Warsaw, 13 March 2018; Programme Warsaw-HEURIGHT-13March2018) the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 (EYCH) label. Our initiative has been assessed as contributing to the achievement of one or more of the objectives of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, as endorsed by the European Parliament and the Council of the EU in Article 2 of the legal decision calling for the EYCH.

Throughout 2018, European societies will celebrate their diverse cultural heritage across Europe – at EU, national, regional and local level. The aim of the EYCH is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe’s cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.

The slogan for the year is: “Our heritage: where the past meets the future”.

The EYCH will see a series of initiatives and events across Europe to enable people to become closer to and more involved with their cultural heritage.

For more info consult the EYCH’s online platform and websites of national coordinators.
