During the European Year of Cultural Heritage, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Croatia as the coordinating body will organize and support numerous events aimed at presenting the richness and variety of Croatian cultural heritage as part of the common European heritage mosaic. Promoting the protection, preservation and values of cultural heritage for the community as a whole will emphasize the importance of actively involving as many individuals, citizen associations and institutions as possible in all cultural heritage-related processes. A dozen of major events will be organized at national level, such as the International Conference on Underwater Cultural Heritage in Europe today aimed at identifying key challenges and issues related to the protection of underwater cultural heritage, or the globally positioned International Conference The Best in Heritage, which will present unique influential projects in the cultural sector. Along with these media covered events, a large number of smaller, but equally valuable activities will be organised, such as workshops, presentations, professional tours, promotions, to be included in the calendar of the European Heritage Days, which are in complete synergy with the marking of the European Year of Cultural Heritage.
