The European Commission has proposed 2018 as the European Year of Cultural Heritage. The final decision now lies with the European Parliament and the Council.
"Our cultural heritage is more than the memory of our past; it is the key to our future. A European Year of Cultural Heritage will be an opportunity to raise awareness of the social and economic importance of cultural heritage and to promote European excellence in the sector."
"I call on the European Parliament and Council to support our proposal and invite all stakeholders to help make this Year a success."
Tibor Navracsics, EU Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport
