"Our heritage: where the past meets the future"
2018: European Year of Cultural Heritage
The European Commission has designated 2018 as the European year of cultural heritage. Throughout 2018, Europeans will celebrate their diverse cultural heritage across the continent - at EU, national, regional and local level. The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
The slogan for the year is: "Our heritage: where the past meets the future". Cultural heritage should not be left to decay, deterioration or destruction. This is why in 2018, all Europeans are invited to search for ways to celebrate and preserve it.
