Youth Summit


In order to celebrate the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, we organize ‘The Future is Heritage’ during the European Cultural Heritage Summit in Berlin.

We believe cultural heritage connects people across countries, but also across generations. Our aim is to bring together young people (18-30) from all over Europe to exchange views on heritage. The program is highly interactive and shaped by and for students, young professionals and volunteers. There will be expert discussions and workshops on the future of heritage, heritage visits in Berlin and inspiring workplaces.
