Europe Votes to Protect Cultural Heritage

On April 27, 2017, the European Parliament officially voted to make 2018 the European Year of Cultural Heritage. After nearly eight months of deliberation, the European Union agreed to set aside funds specifically for the protection of cultural heritage, both tangible and intangible. Mircea Diaconu, a current Member of the European Parliament, hopes that the E.U.’s new focus will help citizens “rediscover what it means to be European.” You can see his interview in the following video, which was produced by EuroparlTV.
