The call for nominations for the 7 Most Endangered 2024 has been extended until 30 September!

If you know of important heritage in Europe that is endangered – such as an historic monument or an ensemble of historic monuments, an archaeological site, a place of worship, an industrial complex, a historic garden, a museum, a movable or an intangible heritage asset – you can nominate it for the 7 Most Endangered Programme 2024 and join us in our efforts to save our heritage!

The 2024 edition of the 7 Most Endangered Programme especially invites nominations of heritage endangered by current or projected climate change hazards, including compounding and cascading risks. Nominations of heritage endangered by both slow onset events (sea level rise, changing seasonality) and rapid onset events (wildfires, extreme flooding) are welcomed.

You have until 30 September to submit your nomination here.

The 7 Most Endangered Programme, celebrating this year its tenth anniversary, 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. It is run by Europa Nostra in partnership with the EIB Institute. It also is supported by the Creative Europe programme of the EU as part of Europa Nostra’s network project “European Cultural Heritage Agora”.

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. The 7 selected sites are eligible to receive an EIB Heritage Grant of up to € 10.000 to start implementing actions, studies or assistance measures for the threatened site.
