The 2018 is designated as the ‘European Year of Cultural Heritage’ (EYCH2018) from the European Parliament and the Council of the European union. The purpose of the European Year is to encourage the sharing and appreciation of Europe’s cultural heritage as a shared resource, to raise awareness of common history and values, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space.
The European Year of Cultural Heritage will be implemented through a series of initiatives at European, national, regional and local levels. Thousands of events and celebrations are planned across Europe.
Throughout 2018, projects putting Europe’s cultural heritage in the spotlight are eligible to receive the EYCH label to show their association and support for the Year. As this is the case of the Regional centre for the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage in South-eastern Europe under the auspices of UNESCO initiative, we would like to encourage you to apply for the EYCH Label.
