European Cultural Heritage Summit from 18-24 June 2018 in Berlin

7 days

Europa Nostra is proud that this Summit, with its motto “Sharing Heritage – Sharing Values”, has been recognised by the European Union as one of the key public events of the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) and will be supported by the EU’s Creative Europe Programme.

The European Cultural Heritage Summit will be co-hosted by Europa Nostra, the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (SPK) and the German Cultural Heritage Committee (DNK), acting as national coordinator of the EYCH in Germany. It will provide a unique platform for further raising the profile and impact of our ever-growing European heritage movement and community. The Summit shall also contribute to the shaping of an ambitious European policy and programme for cultural heritage, as a key vehicle for the revival of the entire European project.

With its wide scope of engagement of heritage stakeholders (public and private, professionals and volunteers), its ambitious and varied programme, its public outreach and three co-hosting organisations, the Summit will distinguish itself from previous annual European Heritage Congresses organised by Europa Nostra.

Please save the following dates for the Summit’s highlights:

  • 21 June: Heritage Excellence Fair (with contributions by our award laureates)
  • 22 June: High-level Policy Debate on Europe & Cultural Heritage

  • 22 June (evening): Award-giving Ceremony for the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards 2018

  • 23 June (morning): Europa Nostra General Assembly followed by visits of the World Heritage Sites in Potsdam

Please note that some of our partner organisations will organise side events on 18-20 June and/or on 23-24 June. The programme featuring these side events will soon be available.
