European Heritage Hub

The European Heritage Hub is a fantastic opportunity for cities already active in cultural heritage as well as for those eager to transform their heritage policies into more sustainable, innovative, and inclusive ones.

The European Heritage Hub is an EU funded pilot project (Creative Europe programme). It brings together a large array of European cultural heritage stakeholders as part of an advocacy and knowledge-sharing platform. The project aims to foster synergies and cooperation between existing and future heritage initiatives and actors, to adopt holistic and integrated approaches to heritage policies at all governance levels. Therefore, the European Heritage Hub will contribute to a more sustainable, innovative, and inclusive future for the heritage ecosystem.

The project developed an interactive digital hub to make heritage content, policies, initiatives, and news easily accessible to all, sat up an online European Heritage Policies Monitor, and provided research and policy papers to fully seize the potential of cultural heritage for our economy, society, and the environment.

Eurocities is designing and implementing a training and capacity-building programme aimed at city representatives and heritage professionals to share best practices and equip them with the skills to tackle environmental, digital, and social challenges related to heritage in their local contexts.
