Webinar: Atlantikwall Europe End Event

17 June 2021, 10.15 am to 2.15 pm

Started in 2018 and interrupted by COVID 19, the Atlantikwall Europe project finally comes to an end. After three years we proudfully present the results of this remarkable project that brought cultural heritage organisations in the seven Atlantic Wall countries Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands, Norway, and the Channel Islands together.

United in the aim to build a European network where Atlantic Wall sites, memorial sites, museums and institutions can share ideas, find guidance and connect with other partners, we will conclude our project officially on June 17 2021. At this Atlantikwall Europe End Event, we want to show the project results and present ideas for future cooperation. Because Atlantikwall Europe wants to continue building a network and seeking opportunities for joined projects after 2021.

The Atlantikwall Europe projects seeks to promote the heritage of the Atlantic Wall as a source of inspiration for cooperation with cultural and educational partners, and to develop a sustainable network of Atlantic Wall heritage sites. The project is co-funded by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
