European Heritage Event

In 2020, thanks to the theme “Heritage and Education: Learning for Life!” , the European Heritage Days will illustrate - in a friendly and often playful way - the full potential of heritage as a learning tool and a source of inspiration for the future.

For a weekend, all over France, public and private owners of historic monuments, members of heritage protection associations, heritage curators, restorers of heritage properties and objects, cultural mediators, Chief Architects of Historic Monuments… mobilize to highlight heritage in all its forms (material, intangible and natural). They offer visitors in situ or connected on dedicated digital networks numerous animations and cultural experiences: guided tours, demonstrations of know-how, exhibitions, games/quiz, readings, etc.

On Friday 18 September, the eve of the European Heritage Days, schools, from kindergarten to the end, are invited to discover their heritage, under the guidance of their teachers. Initiated in 2019 by the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of National Education and Youth, the operation Look up! builds on existing initiatives, such as Children of Heritage, supported by the Councils of Architecture, Planning and Environment (CAUE), and organized by long-standing partners in youth outreach programs.

The European Heritage Days are organized by the Ministry of Culture. Placed under the patronage of the Council of Europe and the European Commission, they receive the assistance of public and private owners of historic monuments. They benefit from the involvement of the Centre of National Monuments, the network of Cities and Countries of Art and History, the Heritage Foundation, the network of CAUE and heritage preservation associations present since the very first edition: the Old French Houses and the Historical House. They are supported by numerous financial, visibility and media partners.
