Europa Nostra at 60 – the present

HomepageEuropa Nostra at 60 – The Present

A look into the present

60 years ago, on 29 November 1963, Europa Nostra was founded at the Council of Europe premises in Paris. Starting out with 11 founding members, it has become the largest civil society network dedicated to cultural heritage in Europe. Today, it gives voice to over 300 organisations from across Europe and beyond.

This remarkable milestone would not have been achieved without the unwavering support of countless committed individuals and valuable partners. In this podcast, we take a moment to explore current activities of Europa Nostra and the influential figures involved.

Audio producer and journalist John Beauchamp from Free Range Productions followed events during the European Heritage Summit in Venice in September 2023 and gathered a mosaic of voices celebrating activities of Europa Nostra across decades. Europa Nostra Heritage Hub proudly assisted in production of these audio podcasts. Some of over twenty speakers can be seen on photographs below.
