Factsheets

During the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, over 6.2 million people took part in more than 11,700 events organised across 37 countries.

The European Commission implemented 10 European Initiatives as the main policy input for the Year, and substantial funding for cultural heritage was made available through different EU programmes. To  ensure that the European Year has a lasting impact beyond 2018, the Commission has presented a set of over 60 actions related to the promotion and protection of cultural heritage in the longer term. The first-ever European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage was produced and it was  presented by Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport at the Closing conference of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 in Vienna on December 7. The Framework for Action re-affirms and puts into practice the principle of mainstreaming of cultural heritage in different EU policy areas, and is the first document to set out an integrated approach to cultural heritage at European level. It includes a whole section on international cooperation and the role of cultural heritage to build stronger global partnerships.
