Support EN campaigns in Support of Europe’s Endangered Heritage (
Europa Nostra campaigns against the many threats to Europe’s cultural heritage. When monuments or sites are in danger by uncontrolled development, environmental change, neglect or conflict, we raise our voice. Cooperation and solidarity between heritage organisations and activists are vital to ensure that witnesses of our past are here to enjoy today and in the future.


Read and Share your Photos, Stories and Events

Europa Nostra is the Voice of Cultural Heritage in Europe. Its website is an interactive digital portal for sharing and gaining information about events and stories about cultural heritage from across the continent. Send EN notices of your events, meetings, exhibitions or courses of European relevance, for our website visitors to see and consult. Share your photos and stories, whether of a stunning heritage treasure you have recently visited, or a shocking case of an endangered heritage building or site.


Explore EN’s Guide to Colourful Europe

The “Guide to Colourful Europe” has been launched to highlight interesting and lesser-known examples of Europe’s heritage and to draw attention to the colourful buildings, sites and traditions which may be lost through climatic changes occurring because of global warming. This first edition of the guide is part of a new and exciting partnership between Europa Nostra and AkzoNobel.



Europa Nostra is rich in the passion and engagement of its volunteers, committed to its mission of safeguarding Europe’s cultural heritage, built and natural, big and small, of local, national or European importance. Coordinated by its small but dedicated Secretariat in The Hague, Europa Nostra is dependent on our volunteers, be they Board or Council members, members of our 400 Member and Associate Organisations, or generous individuals who help at the Secretariat, at Heritage fairs, or from home assisting with translations. Please contact EN if you want to get involved!


Europe’s cultural heritage is constantly and increasingly under threat from a multitude of fronts: Europa Nostra is a loud and effective voice ringing out the alarm! Cultural Heritage is increasingly seen as being widely relevant in more and more aspects of our lives, society and economy: Europa Nostra is present to defend the interests of the sector at European level, and through our members, at National and local levels.
