How can cultural heritage contribute to the European debate, particularly to the two citizen-driven initiatives launched by the EU institutions, the New European Bauhaus and the Conference on the Future of Europe?

This topic will be the theme of the European cultural heritage summit 2021, organised in the World Heritage City of Venice (21 to 24 September)  by Europa Nostra, the voice of cultural heritage in Europe.

Supported by the Creative Europe and Horizon 2020 EU programmes, the summit will be held a hybrid format (online and in-person) and gather representatives of the wider heritage community from across Europe and beyond; civil society organisations; local, regional, national and European authorities; international organisations…

Francisco de Paula Coelho, Dean of the EIB Institute, will be speaking at three events; “Endangered Venice and its Lagoon: How to build back better” on 22 September; “Mobilising the transformative power of European foundations for the benefit of cultural heritage” on 23 September and during the main conference “From the New European Bauhaus to the New European Renaissance” on 24 September.

The Institute has been partnering with Europa Nostra since 2013 to safeguard cultural heritage in danger under the 7 Most Endangered Programme and has supported the “Cultural heritage Green Paper” on cultural heritage and the EU Green Deal”. It is a partner of the New European Bauhaus initiative
