Europa Nostra and its partner organisations working with youth in cultural heritage are launching a wide consultation on “Youth for the Future of Cultural Heritage in Europe” as a contribution to the European Year of Youth 2022.
The consultation is developed in collaboration with the European Students’ Association for Cultural Heritage (ESACH), the Erasmus Student Network (ESN), the European Heritage Tribune (EHT), The Future is Heritage, Europeana Initiative Diversity & Inclusion Task Force, ICOMOS Emerging Professionals Working Group and the European Heritage Volunteers.
The survey aims to:
- explore young people’s visions on how cultural heritage should be integrated into key aspects of society: digital transformation, peacebuilding, sustainable development, tourism…
- find out the degree of satisfaction of young people regarding the way cultural heritage is addressed at European level;
- bring to light the main challenges young professionals, students, volunteers or enthusiasts are facing when interacting with and within the sector.
The responses will be gathered and result in a policy paper which seeks to trigger concrete actions to foster youth involvement in the cultural heritage sector and thus ensure a long-term legacy of the European Year of Youth 2022.
It will be possible to participate in the survey until 31 August 2022.
