The Voice of Cultural Heritage in Europe

Through a very dear friend, I ran across this website today, Europa Noastra
and was mesmerized by the beauty, by the culture and by the vision and mission statement of this organization …                                I am in! Are you?
All this info below is from their website http://www.europanostra.org/who-we-are/
  • EUROPA NOSTRA represents a rapidly growing citizens’ movement for the safeguarding of Europe’s cultural and natural heritage. Our pan-European network is composed of 250 member organisations (heritage associations and foundations with a combined membership of more than 5 million people), 150 associated organisations (governmental bodies, local authorities and corporations) and also 1500 individual members who directly support our mission.                                          Together,

    we form an important lobby for cultural heritage in Europe;

    we celebrate excellence through the European Heritage Awards organised by Europa Nostra in partnership with the European Union; and we campaign to save Europe’s endangered historic monuments, sites and cultural landscapes.

  • We are the Voice of Cultural Heritage in Europe.

March 8th – International Women’s Day

I read today that “The first International Women’s Day was held in 1911 and is celebrated annually on 8 March with thousands of events across the world.

It was honored for the first time in Austria, Denmark, Germany and Switzerland on 19 March, where more than one million men and women attended rallies campaigning for women’s rights to work, vote, be trained, to hold public office and end discrimination.” 

What a wonderful day to celebrate my mom, who is an inspiration to me every day, my daughter, who I aspire to inspire for the rest of her life and my sister, who reminds me to stay inspired each day and live a youthful life. I love you and all my female friends out there and wish you a very Happy International Women’s Day !
