The actors of EYCH2018

 

Although public authorities and departments from the EU member states have to play an important role for the promotion and the organisation of the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the main tasks and responsibilities lay with the civil society, and with all European citizens.
YOU and YOUR ASSOCIATION !
It will be the creativity and the initiatives of citizens and associations that causes the success and the impact of the Year, within the year but also its effects in the long run.

The European Year of Cultural Heritage will however be managed and coordinated at different levels

 

NATIONAL LEVEL

At a national level each member state now has appointed a coordinator and/or an organizing committee: download the list at the bottom of this page and get in touch with the person(s) in charge. Explain them the importance of the industrial heritage, and ask them to support your and E-FAITH's projects.
But in each country there will be 'multipliers' that can promote and be of assistance

Don't hesitate to contact these and to advocate the case of the industrial heritage
 

EUROPEAN LEVEL

At European level, the Year is a joint effort of the European institutions: the Commission, Parliament and Council, as well as the  Committee of the Regions and the European Economic and Social Committee.
There will be also a joint effort of all the departments of the European Commission, for example

It will be "a transversal approach with a view to creating synergies between the various Union programmes and initiatives that can fund the cultural heritage"...

The Council of Europe, ICCROM and UNESCO will be closely associated
The EU Commission is assisted by the stakeholders committee
