Cultural heritage is everywhere around us, but often remains unnoticed. Nowadays we are used to the fact that buildings are restored, landscapes are protected and certain folk art traditions are preserved in our society. However, cultural heritage changes with new generations: everything that is beautiful is also very vulnerable and needs to be protected, in order to remain accessible in the future.

Heritage in Motion is a joint initiative of the European Museum Academy and Europa Nostra and is empowered by Europeana.

The European Museum Academy is a non-profit foundation representing museums at the European level. The EMA has members in more than 30 countries.

Europeana is the central network for the cultural heritage sector in Europe and directly connects thousands of cultural institutions with European citizens.
