A wide range of exhibitions, workshops, performances, guided tours, and many other activities are taking place from mid-August to early November in participating countries of the 2022 edition of European Heritage Days.
The events will be looking at how heritage contributes to a more sustainable future for people and for where they live, work and play
This year’s theme encourages people to look at their heritage from a different perspective, be inspired and demonstrate the sustainability promoted by the European Green Deal. It is a great opportunity for us all to acknowledge how heritage from the past shapes our present and influences our future. In parallel, sustainable heritage is an opportunity to build responsible participation in the legacy of our shared European heritage.
said Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport.
Heritage Days highlight the role of heritage sites in local identities
At events happening across Europe, visitors can understand the impact that historic buildings have in preserving local identities.
The events are also an opportunity to learn how at-risk heritage sites can be restored or re-purposed using traditional renovation techniques, skills, and materials as part of socially and environmentally sustainable urban development.
