How would you like to be an Ambasador of heritage?
Be a storyteller, show what heritage means for your generation and come visit us in Strasbourg!
Are you between 12 and 18 years of age? Are you an explorer? Sharing is fun?
All right then! Let’s play a game.
We have a quest for you: Explore your surroundings, choose a piece of cultural heritage that you like and find a European story in it.
Now, all you have to do is send us the story. But please, make sure your parents approve it.
We will make sure the whole of Europe hears about it by presenting it on the www.europeanheritagedays.com portal.
And that’s not all!
Each country will choose 5 stories to be highlighted.
An International jury will then choose the 10 most inspiring stories and the storytellers will be hosted in Strasbourg!
And don’t forget to share everything on social media with a hashtag #HeritageMakers. Because, if it’s not on social media did it even happen?!
In order to participate, please select your country. You will be redirected to the page of your country where you will find instructions in your language. If your country is not on the list and you really want to participate – write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get you in touch with your national coordinator.
