EHLF ANNUAL ASSEMBLY 19-20th April 2023

“Hosted by the  Flemish Heritage Agency​ and the EHHF secretariat”

The European Heritage Legal Forum (EHLF) met on April 29-30th 2024 in Brussels for its annual meeting, which brought together 15 participants from 12 countries. This meeting was an opportunity to take stock of the legislation discussed within the European institutions and which can have an impact on cultural heritage (directive on the energy efficiency of buildings; regulation on the use of lead; etc.). It was also an opportunity to exchange on common issues and to be inspired by the good practices of each other.

A little bit of history

A European Heritage Summit was first organized in London on 26–28 April 2006 by Dr. Simon Thurley, former Chief Executive Officer of English Heritage. The mission of the Summit was to gather for the first time the European cultural heritage leaders who had the opportunity to exchange their experience and initiate common actions. It was attended by 23 European states which agreed in the Final Statement to continue to meet annually as a forum of European heritage heads, known as the “European Heritage Heads Forum”. Future hosting countries are chosen by general agreement at the annual meeting.
