Ten years after the European Year of Intercultural Dialogue, the European Union will focus on a specific aspect related to cultural diversity, namely Cultural Heritage. The 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage will spotlight cultural heritage as a part of people’s everyday lives and, in particular, as an unexploited learning resource for young and old.
Europeana, Europe’s platform for cultural heritage, is the digital face of the European Year.
Moreover, the School Education Gateway provides educational resources related related to this European Year:
- PUBLICATION: Birthplace diversity, income inequality and education gradients in generalised trust: the relevance of cognitive skills across 29 countries
- NEWS: World Heritage Education Programme: a window into our origins
- PUBLICATION: From equality and inclusion to cultural pluralism – Evolution and effects of cultural diversity perspectives in schools
- NEWS: Europeana Education: bringing Europe’s cultural and scientific heritage to teachers, students and lifelong learners
- PRACTICE: Our heritage: where the past meets the future
- TEACHING MATERIAL: Cultural Heritage and Cultural Diversity Lessons: A Handbook for Teachers
During this year, the LLLPlatform and Culture Action Europe closely together: they organised the event “Culture and Education for All: Building the Skills for More Resilient Societies” on 14 March at BOZAR in Brussels, and they issued a joint position paper.
The LLLPlatform is dedicating to this topic its Annual conference and the Lifelong Learning Week.
The European Commission is organising the flagship event of the European Year in Berlin, at the European Cultural Heritage Summit, on 18-22 June.
