European Year of Cultural Heritage

NEMO created a webpage dedicated to the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 to bring together relevant information and inform about opportunities, activities and events.

The 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH 2018) aims to raise awareness of European history and values and to strengthen a sense of European identity. It encourages more people to discover and explore the opportunities of Europe’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. At the same time, it draws attention to the challenges cultural heritage faces, such as the impact of the digital shift, environmental and physical pressure on heritage sites, and the illicit trafficking of cultural objects.

The main objectives of this European Year are:

  • to promote cultural diversity, intercultural dialogue and social cohesion;
  • to highlight the economic contribution of cultural heritage to the cultural and creative sectors, including small and medium-sized enterprises, and to local and regional development
  • to emphasise the role of cultural heritage in European cultural diplomacy
  • to underline the importance of safeguarding our common cultural heritage
