One year, thousands of celebrations

After 12 months and over 11,500 events involving 6.2 million people, the European Year of Cultural Heritage is reaching its conclusion. Throughout the year, we’ve been celebrating the tangible, intangible, natural and digital elements that define our past and guide our future. Cultural heritage is intrinsic to our European identity and 2018 has been an excellent commemoration of its importance.

In the sixth and final newsletter, we’ll be rounding off the year with a final update on all the activities and events that took place. What’s more, the European Year of Cultural Heritage is as much about passing the torch to the next generation as it is about marking the generations of the past. Which is why this edition of the newsletter is dedicated to young people and the important role they play in keeping heritage, tradition and culture alive.
