Eurocities, in partnership with KEA, ERRIN, Europa Nostra and the Architects Council of Europe, implemented Cultural Heritage in Action, the peer-learning scheme for cities and regions on cultural heritage.

Financed by the European Union from January 2020 to January 2023, Cultural Heritage in Action helped hundreds of local policy makers to learn from each others and develop innovative policies on cultural heritage.
