European Heritage Hub: Connecting Heritage Across Europe

The European Heritage Hub is one of the largest cultural heritage-driven projects across Europe to support the green, social and digital transformation of our society. The latest podcast talks about the background, assumptions and importance of this project for the whole of Europe.

Launched in May 2023 by a consortium of 20 partners led by Europa Nostra, and co-funded by the European Union, this pilot project brings together a large array of heritage stakeholders and initiatives, responding to the need for a more structured cooperation and coordination for heritage across Europe and beyond.

In this episode, we travel to Venice, where the Hub held its first public Forum titled ‘Reimagining the Anthropocene: Putting Culture and Heritage at the Heart of Climate Action’. Against the captivating backdrop of water splashing against the banks and the gentle hum of vaporettos, we hear first-hand from the Project Leader, several Hub partners, and some of the keynote speakers of the inaugural Forum.

Listen on to learn more about the mission of the Hub, upcoming activities and priorities, as well as the intrinsic connection between climate justice and cultural heritage.

Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović, Project Leader of the European Heritage Hub and Secretary General of Europa Nostra;
Carla Toffolo, Programme Manager of the European Heritage Hub;
