The Call for European Heritage Stories has just been published by the Council of Europe under the Joint action “European Heritage Days”.

The call for European Heritage Stories intends to identify the European Dimension of heritage sites and heritage work undertaken by the communities in Europe. It refers to past or existing "stories" that communities would like to share and potentially develop into a project to further contribute to their communities.

In the framework of the joint vision of shared European values, the Call is also open to the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage/Europa Nostra Award winners and the European Heritage Label sites. The deadline for submission of Stories is Thursday 18 April 2019.

The Call for European Stories was launched as an activity of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the successes of which it now aims to build on, and supporting the European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage, adopted in December 2018 to secure the long term impact of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

The European Heritage Days is the most widely celebrated participatory cultural event in Europe. The Council of Europe launched the initiative in 1985, which became a joint action co-organised with the European Union in 1999.
