Education

Cultural heritage has a crucial role to play in education. The digital collections of Europeana provide multiple perspectives on historical, scientific and cultural developments across Europe and beyond. We want to bring this source of knowledge to every learner, educator or educational organisation so that they can experience the pedagogical potential of digital cultural heritage and build new 21st century skills.

Partners

We aim to bring the knowledge of Europe’s cultural heritage collections to every learner and educator in Europe in formal and non-formal education. To make that possible we are building partnerships with ministries of education, associations and networks working on education at European level, as well as edtechs that integrate Europeana content to design new educational products and services. If you would like to work with us please get in contact with Isabel Crespo at isabel.crespo@europeana.eu.
