NEMO is proud to sign and share the “Berlin Call to Action”, which builds momentum from the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018 and calls for action with tangible results in regard to cultural heritage. The document was presented at the European cultural Heritage Summit in Berlin, Germany, on 22 June 2018 by the co-hosting organisations EUROPA NOSTRA, the German Cultural Heritage Committee (DNK) and the Prussian Cultural Heritage Foundation (SPK).
By signing the Berlin Call to Action, NEMO acknowledges the potential and power that a shared cultural heritage promises when striving towards a more peaceful, prosperous, inclusive and just Europe. As a member of the EYCH Stakeholders Committee and the European Heritage Alliance 3.3., NEMO has been part of developing the document through input and support.
