Launched in 2013 with the support of the EIB Institute and currently in its 7th edition, the 7 Most Endangered Programme is a civil society campaign to save Europe’s endangered heritage. It raises awareness, makes independent expert assessments, proposes recommendations for action and seeks to rally support to save the selected endangered sites.

Being on the 7 Most Endangered List often serves as a catalyst for positive change and as an incentive for mobilisation of the necessary public or private support. Moreover, the 7 Most Endangered Programme includes the possibility for the 7 selected sites to receive an EIB Heritage Grant of up to 10.000 euros to start the implementation of actions, studies or assistance measures for the threatened site.

The 7 Most Endangered Programme is run by Europa Nostra – the European Voice of Civil Society Committed to Cultural and Natural Heritage – in partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute. It also has the support of the Creative Europe programme of the EU as part of Europa Nostra’s network project “European Cultural Heritage Agora”.
