24-25.09.2022 European Heritage Days 2022

On 24 and 25 September 2022, the European Heritage Days (EHD), an initiative of the Council of Europe in cooperation with the European Union since 1999, returned to more than 50 countries. 

The title of the 2022 edition was 'Sustainable Cultural Heritage: A Legacy for the Future'. The 2022 edition proposed a reflection on the sustainable management of cultural heritage and landscape from an environmental, social and economic perspective. These walks were special routes that, going beyond tradition, allowed participants to discover and capture the territory through the eyes of those who live it. This was possible thanks to the direct participation of inhabitants, associations and institutions linked to a certain place, which fostered a deeper understanding of it for the benefit of its enhancement and transmission to future generations. 

The Italian representation of the Council of Europe based in Venice in the year 2022 coordinated over 130 events all over Italy, most of them on the occasion of the European Heritage Days. This was possible thanks to the consolidated partnership with the Ministry of Culture (MiC), the Italian Federation of Associations and Clubs for UNESCO, WIGWAM Italy, the regional Ecomuseums and the Italian Institute of Castles, which decided to celebrate the National Castles Days within the GEP.

The walks were organised with the coordination of the Venice Office of the Council of Europe, the only office in Italy, in collaboration with Europe Direct Venezia Veneto del Comune di Venezia.

The coordination of the Heritage Walks is part of a targeted series of initiatives implemented by the Venice Office to promote awareness of and adherence to the Council of Europe Framework Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Faro Convention), ratified by Italy in September 2020.
