ICOMOS recently participated in the European Cultural Heritage Summit that took place from 18-24 June 2018 in Berlin, Germany, with the theme of “Sharing Heritage – Sharing Values”. The European Union recognised the Summit as one of the main public events of the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH).

The Summit brought together a wide range of public and private stakeholders from across Europe. The “Berlin Call to Action” was presented at the end of the Summit by the three co-hosting organisations: Europa Nostra; the German Cultural Heritage Committee, acting as national coordinator of the European Year of Cultural Heritage in Germany; and the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation. This document, of which ICOMOS is a signatory, is a call to ensure the transmission of cultural heritage to future generations.
