On the occasion of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, the European Commission has developed material that valorise the legacy of the EYCH 2018 and highlight its importance. Among these, it has published "Erasmus+ Enriching our cultural heritage", which includes several examples of projects that link education, training, youth and heritage.
For the past 30 years, Erasmus+ and its predecessors have opened up opportunities for young people to discover and engage with their cultural roots. They have allowed thousands of institutions and associations working on cultural heritage – nature reserves, museums or historic buildings – to develop their educational programmes. Erasmus+ also supports the teaching of European cultural heritage and helps train volunteers and professionals in preserving this heritage and sharing knowledge about it.
