The Europa Nostra 2012 European Heritage Congress will take place in Lisbon from 30 May through 2 June. This event, jointly organised by Europa Nostra and its Portuguese member organisation Centro Nacional de Cultura, will bring together many of our members and other European heritage professionals and volunteers, as well as the proud laureates of the EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards.
The public highlight of the Congress – the European Heritage Awards Ceremony – will be held on 1 June at the UNESCO World Heritage site, the Jerónimos Monastery, in the presence of H.E. Aníbal Cavaco Silva, President of the Republic of Portugal. Europa Nostra’s President, Maestro Plácido Domingo and the European Commissioner for Education, Culture, Multilingualism, Sport, Media and Youth, Mrs Androulla Vassiliou, will jointly present the 2012 Awards to the laureates, who will come to Lisbon from all over Europe.
