    Communication activities

    Europa Nostra acts as a relay between civil society and EU institutions, carrying out the crucial tasks of raising-awareness on the value of cultural heritage for Europe, advocating the mainstreaming of heritage into EU policies and securing adequate funding, as well as actively contributing to the EU policy debate and policy-making process.

    Since 2014, Europa Nostra is among the selected European networks active in the field of the cultural and creative sectors co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Commission. We are currently running the project "“European Cultural Heritage Agora: Empowering Europe’s Civil Society Movement for Heritage" since 1 January 2022 and until 31 December 2024.

    Europa Nostra runs the European Heritage Awards/Europa Nostra Awards scheme since its launch in 2002 by the European Commission. The Awards promote best practices related to heritage conservation, management, research, education and communication. In this way, the Awards scheme contributes to a stronger public recognition of cultural heritage as a strategic resource for Europe’s society and economy.

    Europa Nostra also manages The 7 Most Endangered programme which was launched in January 2013 by Europa Nostra with the European Investment Bank Institute as founding partner and the Council of Europe Development Bank as associated partner. The 7 Most Endangered programme identifies endangered monuments and sites in Europe and mobilizes public and private partners on a local, national and European level to find a viable future for those sites.

    Europa Nostra organises and contributes to many meetings, forums, capacity building and networking events related to cultural heritage. We also organise an annual European Cultural Heritage Congress gathering hundreds of heritage professionals and volunteers from Europe and beyond.

    Europa Nostra coordinates and provides the secretariat for the European Heritage Alliance 3.3, an informal platform of circa 50 European and International networks active in the wider field of cultural heritage.

    On 1 November 2021, Europa Nostra was appointed as the Regional Co-Chair of the Climate Heritage Network (CHN) for Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States, during the CHN 2021 General Assembly held in Glasgow in the framework of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26). As Regional Co-Chair of the CHN, Europa Nostra is able to contribute in a coordinated and efficient way to further unleash the potential of culture and heritage in tackling this generation’s defining task – climate change.

    Europa Nostra has also partnerships with various organisations regarding Awards scheme related to the wider field of cultural heritage:, Helena Vaz da Silva European Award, Destination of Sustainable Cultural Tourism Awards.

    Europa Nostra is the project leader of a consortium of 21 partners for the implementation of a pilot project establishing a European Heritage Hub. This ambitious project gathers diverse expertise and pools resources to mobilise and strengthen the cultural heritage-driven movement in Europe. This project, funded by the European Union, runs from May 2023 to April 2025
