The European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018
Throughout 2018, we will celebrate our diverse cultural heritage across Europe – at EU, national, regional and local level. The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe’s cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space. The slogan for the year is: Our heritage: where the past meets the future.
The ROOTS coordinator Jóhanna Arnórsdóttir submitted an application for ROOTS to be a part of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 (EYCH) label. We got this answer:
Thank you for having applied for the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 (EYCH) label.
We have read the Routes to Outdoor Oriented Teaching and Sustainability – ROOTS with interest and we are pleased to inform you that it fulfils the award criteria of the EYCH label. The ground for our decision is that the initiative can contribute to the achievement of one or more of the objectives of the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, as endorsed by the European Parliament and the Council of the EU in Article 2.
We are happy to grant your initiative Routes to Outdoor Oriented Teaching and Sustainability – ROOTS with the right to use the EYCH’s visual identity and label. Our project are proud to be a part of this year and will work with this on our meeting in Slovenia in the fall of 2108.
