Our projects

The task of the Europa Nostra Heritage Hub in Krakow is to connect civic organisations and institutions working in the field of heritage in Central and Eastern Europe. We are working to improve the visibility of activities undertaken for heritage, facilitate understanding between various heritage actors, and be part of changes in the local, regional and European dimension by initiating new projects.

A special place in the area of our interests is occupied by the challenges faced by historic cities, such as resilience to challenges related to socio-economic changes, overtourism, commercialisation or migration (our thematic area: Historic City and Resilience), issues related to participation in the field of heritage i.e. active involvement in activities, taking initiatives, co-creating content (our thematic area: Participation in Heritage), climate catastrophe – its impact on heritage and the role of heritage in minimizing its effects, sustainable development and post-growth in the context of heritage (our thematic area: Heritage in the Anthropocene) and the importance of heritage for improving social and individual well-being and using its potential in health treatment and prevention (our thematic area: Heritage for Wellbeing and Health).
