Cultural Heritage in Action has ended, long live Cultural Heritage in Action!

For 18 months, Cultural Heritage in Action allowed exchange on cultural heritage as a key to Europe’s future and a crucial resource and strategic asset for cities and regions’ sustainable development. Cultural heritage ranks high in the strategic priorities of local and regional authorities. Throughout its activities, Cultural Heritage in Action had an important impact on capacity building in cultural heritage-led development in European local and regional administrations as well as for stakeholders.


The project has developed a catalogue of 32 good practices across Europe and involved almost 250 representatives of cities, regions, cultural heritage organisations and national administrations in peer learning visits hosted by 10 European cities and regions.


Taking stock of what has been achieved and looking towards the future.


The reports from all 10 peer learning visits, in which you will find lessons from hosts and recommendations from experts, are now available on this website. To go further, you can also (re)watch all the videos from our peer learning visits. We would also like to invite you to continue the conversation about Cultural Heritage in Action on our LinkedIn group.


This group is for all of you who wish to follow up with more ideas around visits and lessons from the project, to ask for help and information, or to reach out and develop connections you have made.


We encourage an open space where we have an opportunity to keep exchanging. In this group you will be able to discuss challenges and barriers encountered along the way in your daily work and seek advice on how they were overcome by fellow colleagues. Consider this as a space to get useful information and ideas for improving your existing local projects, initiating new ones or transferring some of the presented practices.


Do not hesitate to join!


Save the date!


With an online event to take place in October 2021, we want to share the findings of the first phase of the project and raise awareness on future peer-learning activities for cities and regions reflecting the post pandemic situation and its impacts on cultural heritage. More information will be circulated during the summer 2021.


We hope to see you there!
