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.
