Last 23 April 2018, the Cultural Diplomacy Platform organised a Forum entitled “European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018: International Perspectives” in Brussels. It was an opportunity to look at the international perspectives of the main themes of European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH). Cultural heritage professionals from outside Europe were invited to exchange and share experiences with European experts, cultural operators and EU policy makers. The Forum was attended by 250 participants and was widely relayed on social media.
The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space. The slogan for the year is: Our heritage: where the past meets the future.*
As one of the official “stakeholders” for the European Year, ICOMOS will participate by organizing activites and events at international level and locally through its National Committees.
