Tell us in more details about your Story. You are welcomed to make your Story as informative, serious, amusing, passionate or original as you wish. But most of all, we welcome interesting and well-written real-life histories and stories for you to share with all European Heritage Days communities. If you would like your contact details to be shown with the Story, we advise you to put your contact details at the end of the description.
We invite applicants to define their own understanding of European heritage, and ask that these are in line with the Council of Europe's expressed values on human rights, democracy and the rule of law. Your Story should aim to increase understanding of the shared history of Europe in the following ways: the pan-European nature of the heritage, links with key European events and movements, or the role of the heritage in the development and promotion of the common values that underpin European integration. What will be the impact of your action at a European level?
