Your opinion on the European Heritage Label

  • culture

A consultation by the European Commission aims to collect views about the functioning and results of the European Heritage Label action.


Since 2013, the label has been given to 38 sites symbolising European values, tradition and history. Many of them are urban, for example the European district of Strasbourg and the historic Gdańsk shipyard.

European Heritage sites bring to life the European narrative and the history behind it. The focus is on the promotion of the European dimension of the sites and providing access to them. This includes organising a wide range of educational activities, especially for young people.

The consultation is open until May 24th.
