The European Democracy Sites distinction

The House of European History is pleased to announce that nominations are now open for the first edition of the European Democracy Sites distinction.

The European Democracy Sites distinction was launched in 2022, at an initiative of the European Parliament. The goal for 2022 is to nominate one historical site per member state of the European Union. Being awarded the European Democracy Sites award will support the visibility of a historical site and its efforts to connect with other historical sites and educational institutions. Additionally the distinction consists of a plaque to be displayed at the respective site. The 2022 Special Focus Theme will be “Free Elections”. 

The House of European History envisions to make these sites “living sites” through strong programming and by working closely with the respective communities around the sites, their local educational institutions, youth organisations, and NGOs.
