Winners of the Young European Heritage Makers Competition selected

Montenegro
North Macedonia

Participants from Montenegro were amongst 2021 edition winners of the European Commission’s Young European Heritage Makers under the joint action European Heritage Days. From 1 September to 10 November 2021 young Europeans from 9 participating countries, including Montenegro and North Macedonia, expressed their vision of heritage through more than 60 testimonies.

 

The competition invites children and high schoolers to explore their surroundings, learn about their local tangible and intangible cultural heritage and share a story of Europe. This initiative enhances young people’s understanding of the concept of heritage and its relevance for local communities.

 

After a first selection at national level in 2 age categories, the national winners were evaluated by a European panel of judges. Amongst 11 European winners, two projects from Montenegro were selected: Visiting Kula Redzepagica museum, in the age category 6-11 years old, and Memories Movie in the age group of 11-17 years old.

 

The European Heritage Days (EHD) are the most widely celebrated participatory cultural events shared by people living in Europe.
