Maritime Cultural Heritage 2018

We are Water

The European Commission has declared 2018 the European Year of Cultural Heritage. We seize this opportunity to put maritime heritage in the spotlight. We want you to share your most extraordinary story about your relationship with water.

What is your favourite maritime heritage?

Maritime objects, (historic) ships, shipwrecks, bridges and maritime cultural landscapes are tangible remnants of our past relations with
water. Intangible maritime heritage is also everywhere around us. History, personal memories, paintings, photographs, poems, are an
important part of our maritime cultural heritage too. Our heritage is what we – as a society - wish to research and
pass on to next generations. What maritime heritage do you want to keep for your children? Tell us. This is your chance!
