European Heritage Days celebrate “Heritage and Education: Learning for Life!”

The 2020 European Heritage Days, a joint initiative of the European Commission and the Council of Europe supported by the Creative Europe Programme, are now taking place across Europe until October.

This year's edition celebrates the enriching cooperation between education and heritage. Despite the obstacles posed by coronavirus, organisers are being encouraged to create a digital offering of their venue to be featured online, in addition to thousands of events actually taking place (with physical distancing). 

Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth, Mariya Gabriel, said: “This year, in addition to physical events, European Heritage Days is proposing a most impressive digital offering, providing a long-term legacy for its many thousands of monuments and sites. We are proud to present a programme, which is both local-led and truly accessible by everyone across our entire continent.”
