EUROPEAN YEAR OF CULTURAL HERITAGE AND EUROPEAN HERITAGE LABELS

Page history last edited by Carouzou 1 year, 10 months ago

Heritage is that which society inherits from previous generations and deems worthy of taking special measures to preserve for future generations.

 

 

 

Throughout 2018, we  celebrated our diverse cultural heritage across Europe

at the EU, national, regional and local level.

 

The aim of the  European Year of Cultural Heritage 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.

EUROPEAN HERITAGE LABELS

 

WHAT IS IT?

European Heritage sites are milestones in the creation of today’s Europe. Spanning from the dawn of civilization to the Europe we see today, these sites celebrate and symbolise European ideals, values, history and integration.

Since 2013, these sites have been carefully selected for their symbolic value, the role they have played in the European history and activities they offer that bring the European Union and its citizens closer together.

What makes the European Heritage label unique and how is it different from the UNESCO World Heritage List? There are three key differences:

  • European Heritage sites bring to life the European narrative and the history behind it. They are about much more than just aesthetics
  • The focus is on the promotion of the European dimension of the sites and providing access to them. This includes organising a wide range of educational activities, especially for young people
  • European Heritage sites can be enjoyed singly or as part of a network. Visitors can get a real feel for the breadth and scale of what Europe has to offer and what it has achieved
