2023 Young European Heritage Makers competition announced

Young European Heritage Makers is a competition for the young people of Europe. It is an opportunity for them to explore their surroundings, learn about their local tangible and intangible cultural heritage and share a story of Europe. The objectives of the Young European Heritage Makers competition is to collect experiences and stories of how children and young people understand the European dimension of their local heritage. This can include tangible heritage such as monuments and buildings, features of the natural landscape, or intangible heritage shared by their community, such as dancing, singing or local cultural traditions. Creative interpretations are very much encouraged.


This competition is part of the European Heritage Days. With up to 70 000 events organised each year in the European States signatory to the European Cultural Convention and an estimated 30 million visitors, this joint action of the Council of Europe and of the European Commission is a unique example of a grass-roots initiative organised and shared by millions of people living in Europe. Check out the European Heritage Days website for more information about the competition, including how to register, your country’s participation status, the role of mentors in the competition.
