An European action
It’s not less than 50 signatory states of the European Cultural Convention that participate each year in the European Heritage Days.

Raising young people’s awareness of European heritage in all its diversity holds an important place for each country, which is why this 34th edition was under the theme “Youth and Heritage”.
