This new EU project will seek to strengthen the engagement of citizens with Europe’s cultural heritage. It will particularly focus on attracting the younger generation of heritage professionals, following the European Year of Youth 2022.
The hub will also drive policy analysis, development and advocacy build connections with existing EU-level initiatives, and generate communication and awareness-raising campaigns on safeguarding cultural heritage.
The hub will build on the success of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, and on the European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage, established by the European Commission with the aim to capture and scale-up the success of the European Year and to ensure its lasting impact, through an ambitious set of 60 actions.
It will also carry on the legacy of the European Year of Youth 2022 and contribute to the European Year of Skills in 2023.
