Eurobarometer 2018 – the results have been published

Eurobarometer 2018 – the results have been published:

So, what did we find out?

The vast majority of Europeans (84%) feel that cultural heritage is important to them personally, and 90% believe that it is important to their country. There is also a strong feeling that cultural heritage is a crucial part of European identity, with 80% believing that it is important to the EU as a whole.

  • Many Europeans are proud of the history and culture within their local communities; 82% take pride in historical monuments or sites, works of art or traditions from their region or country. Also, 7 in 10 agree that they take pride in a historical monument or site, work of art or tradition from a European country other than their own.
  • The majority (70%) claimed that living close to places with remarkable examples of Europe’s cultural heritage can give people a sense of belonging to Europe.
  • Cultural heritage is clearly at the heart of our everyday lives, with 7 in 10 Europeans (71%) living close to a historic monument or site, and over half (51%) being personally involved in some form of cultural heritage. Moreover, 71% also believe that living near places of importance to Europe’s cultural heritage can improve their quality of life.
  • A large majority of Europeans (88%) believe that Europe’s cultural heritage should be taught in schools, as it is highly relevant for our history and culture.

This is a small snapshot of the findings, but the full results are available on the Eurobarometer website. Country files are also available for all 28 EU Member States.
