Berlin Call to Action “Cultural Heritage for the Future of Europe”
Posted on 19 July 2018
The Berlin Call to Action is an initiative aiming to bring European cultural heritage in the centre of European politics, as an important building pillar of our shared future. Presented at the European Cultural Heritage Summit on 22 June 2018, Berlin Call is the common project of three European cultural heritage associations, namely the Europa Nostra, the German Cultural Heritage Committee, and the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. The project also builds on the input and support of the EYCH national coordinators, members of the EYCH Stakeholders Committee, and of the European Heritage Alliance 3.3, of which the European Historic Houses is an official member.
The initiative is built on the association`s determination to transmit European heritage to the future generations. At the same time, they identify heritage, besides their economic value, to have priceless social and cultural significance. The call aims to unfold the cohesive power of common European heritage which is a tool towards a more prosperous and inclusive Europe. The European Year of Cultural Heritage gave a framework for European heritage to gain more attention, hence allow the associations dealing with it to influence the debate on the Future of Europe.
