Get to know the European Heritage Hub in our newly released podcast episode!

The European Heritage Hub is one of the largest cultural heritage-driven projects across Europe to support the green, social and digital transformation of our society. Launched in May 2023 by a consortium of 20 partners led by Europa Nostra, and co-funded by the European Union, this pilot project brings together a large array of heritage stakeholders and initiatives, responding to the need for a more structured cooperation and coordination for heritage across Europe and beyond.

This newly released podcast episode provides a more in-depth look at the Hub, its objectives and upcoming activities. It transports listeners back to Venice, where the Hub held its first public Forum titled ‘Reimagining the Anthropocene: Putting Culture and Heritage at the Heart of Climate Action’.

Against the captivating backdrop of water splashing against the banks and the gentle hum of vaporettos, we hear first-hand from the Project Leader, several Hub partners, and some of the keynote speakers of the inaugural Forum, including young heritage advocates, who highlight the intrinsic connection between climate justice and cultural heritage.

It features the following voices, in order of appearance: 

  • Carla Toffolo, Programme Manager of the European Heritage Hub; 
  • Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović, Project Leader of the European Heritage Hub and Secretary General of Europa Nostra; 
  • Andrew Potts, Heritage and Climate Action Advisor at Europa Nostra; 
  • Catherine Magnant, Head of the Cultural Policy Unit in the European Commission; 
  • Lorena Aldana, Head of External Relations and Advocacy at the Europeana Foundation; 
  • Bastien Varoutsikos, Director of Strategic Development at the ALIPH Foundation;
  • HRH Princess Dana Firas of Jordan, President of ICOMOS-Jordan and Petra National Trust, and Climate Heritage Network Special Envoy; 
  • Adam Klups, European Heritage Youth Ambassador; and 
  • Marshall Marcus, Executive and Artistic Director of the European Union Youth Orchestra.

This podcast was produced in collaboration with the Europa Nostra Heritage Hub in Kraków and Free Range Productions. The production and promotion of the podcast received the financial support of the European Union and La Fondation Hippocrène, a partner of Europa Nostra
