Commissioner Navracsics in Prague for second Cultural Heritage Platform

Commissioner for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport, Tibor Navracsics, will be at the Dominican Monastery in Prague tomorrow (8 October) to deliver the closing speech at the Platform on Cultural Heritage in the Digital Age. This is the second in a series of events announced in the European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage presented by the Commission last December to ensure that the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage has a lasting impact. The event, which begins today, involves 100 participants from national governments and their agencies, from key global institutions as well as other high-level experts who will share ideas and propose solutions. They will discuss cultural heritage and how digitalisation can encourage more citizens to discover and engage in cultural heritage. Tomorrow, the Commission will also launch the second edition of the Cultural and Creative Cities Monitor, which was published first in 2017.
