Cultural heritage is key to Europe’s future and a crucial resource and strategic assets for cities and regions’ sustainable development. Our peer learning programme Cultural Heritage in Action already had an important impact on capacity building in cultural heritage-led development in European local and regional administrations as well as for stakeholders.
It is now time to take stock of what has been achieved and look towards the future!
The objectives of the online event are to share what we learned from European cities and regions representatives so far and raise awareness on future peer-learning opportunities for European cities, regions and stakeholders to continue exchanging and learning about the power of cultural heritage for local and regional development.
We are thrilled to announce that Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport, Culture of the European Commission Themis Christophidou will open the event. We will also be joined by MEP Marcos Ros Sempere, Committee on Culture and Education member and Sneška Quaedvlieg–Mihailović, Europa Nostra Secretary General, who will give us insights on the role of culture and cultural heritage as a catalyst for a sustainable recovery in European cities and regions.
