European Heritage Alliance 3.3
The European Heritage Alliance 3.3 is an informal platform of 48 European and international networks active in the wider field of heritage. It brings together civil society, historic cities and villages, educational institutions, museums and similar organisations.
The European Heritage Alliance 3.3 was created in Amsterdam during the 2011 European Heritage Congress organised by Europa Nostra. Joint advocacy for cultural heritage is at the heart of the Alliance and its position paper Towards an EU Strategy for Cultural Heritage – the Case for Research (2012) inspired the EU-funded policy project Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe. The Alliance meets at least twice a year to allow for a regular and structured dialogue between the members and with EU institutions.
As initiator and founding member, Europa Nostra has been acting as coordinator of the Alliance since the beginning and these activities are co-funded by the EU as part of Europa Nostra’s network project “Sharing Heritage – Sharing Values” (2017-2020).
