About the European Heritage Tribune

The European Heritage Tribune is a young and independent digital news platform for the European heritage community. We strengthen the European network by sharing the news and distributing the knowledge by and for the heritage sector.

We believe that a healthy sector requires a critical and independent journalistic outlet

The European Heritage Tribune is a free two-weekly digital newsletter with daily updates through our social media channels and on our website.

We cover the news of Europe’s cultural heritage as influenced by national and international politics, economy, policy, legislation, finance, climate change, digitization, tourism and a lot more.

Our 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’.

We want to be a valuable channel for sharing experiences and knowledge, and for promoting further pan-European and cross-sector collaboration.

We cross the boundaries, question the usual and voice the underrepresented.

Young & European,
The Heritage Tribune collaborates closely with young professionals from all over Europe to bring new energy and approaches to the table.

Private & public
The European news platform is sustained with the support of partners and sponsors both private and public and is a lasting legacy of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018.

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.
