BLUEMED received European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 label

BLUEMED got the award of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 (EYCH) label. EYCH label will give to BLUEMED the opportunity to collaborate with other initiatives, ensuring its positive contribution to Europe’s cultural heritage.

The European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) is an opportunity to celebrate Europe’s cultural heritage across the whole continent. To complement campaigns developed by national coordinators, the members of the stakeholders’ committee launched an EU-wide communication campaign to promote Europe’s diverse cultural heritage. 

The year will see a series of initiatives and events across Europe to enable people to become closer to and more involved with their cultural heritage. As cultural heritage shapes our identities and everyday lives, BLUEMED will take the European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH) label and be part of a group of initiatives that promote tourism and protect the European cultural heritage.

The key objective of the campaign is to raise awareness of the positive contributions that Europe’s cultural heritage brings to the economy, society, tourism, employment, relations with third countries, cultural diversity, social inclusion and intercultural dialogue. The main slogan of the campaign is ‘Our Heritage: Where the past meets the future’. The main objectives of the EYCH are to promote the role of Europe’s cultural heritage in cultural diversity and intercultural dialogue as well as its importance to the relations between the European Union and third countries.
