About the European Heritage Tribune

The European Heritage Tribune is a young and independent digital news platform for the European heritage community. It aims at strengthening the European network by sharing news and knowledge while fostering attention and understanding of each other’s cultural and historical backgrounds.

The European Heritage Tribune consists of a free two weekly digital newsletter with daily updates online. It covers news of Europe’s cultural heritage as influenced by national and international politics and economy, developments in legislation, financing, tourism, digitization, climate change and official cultural policy.

The platform offers news and curated news, blogs, calls, events, job opportunities, opinions and best practices from all European Countries. It shows ‘who is doing what’ and ‘what is happening where’ and aims to be a valuable means for sharing experiences, knowledge, and promoting further pan-European collaboration. The EHT works with a growing network of young, voluntary correspondents from all over Europe. The average age of the editorial team is 24.

The European Heritage Tribune is a Non Commercial project sustained with the support of a host of partners and sponsors both private and public. 


The European Heritage Tribune was initiated in 2018 and launched in 2019 under the aegis of ‘Stichting Erfgoedlab‘ (The  Heritage Lab Foundation), which received funding from the Dutch Mondriaan Fund, the DCICC foundation, the Dutch provinces of Utrecht, Drenthe and Groningen and the Dutch Heritage Association NGO Heemschut.

The official launch took place in October 2019 during the European Cultural Heritage Summit. In the Hotel de Ville of Paris, the European Heritage Tribune was officially presented to Hermann Parzinger, Executive President of Europa Nostra and Catherine Magnant, former coordinator of the EYCH 2018 at the European Commission.

The European Heritage Tribune is a lasting legacy of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.
