Who we are

We are the leading citizens’ movement to protect and celebrate Europe’s cultural and natural heritage.

We are the voice of all who believe that cultural heritage is vital for our economy, our society, our culture, our environment, our well-being and for the future of Europe.

As Europeans – people who have lived here for generations as well as people who have newly arrived – we have to take full responsibility for transmitting this heritage in good shape to future generations.

What we do for Europe's heritage

We act as advocates of heritage towards policy-makers at all levels of governance
We campaign to save threatened heritage sites through the 7 Most Endangered programme
We promote excellence through the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards
