Регионален исторически музей Бургас ще подкрепя инициативите за популяризирането на родното културно наследство, както като партньорска организация на общината така и като водеща културна институция в Бургаски регион.
Културното наследство е формираща част от нашето ежедневие. То е навсякъде в градовете, природните ландшафти и археологическите обекти на Европа. То е не само в литературата, изкуството и предметите, но и в занаятите, които научаваме от нашите предци, приказките, които разказваме на нашите деца, храната, на която се наслаждаваме, и филмите, които гледаме и в които разпознаваме себе си.
Културното наследство обединява Европа чрез общите ни история и ценности. То е и израз на богатството и разнообразието на нашите културни традиции. Нашето общо културно наследство трябва да бъде разбрано, ценено и чествано. Но то не е просто наследство от миналото. То ни помага и да градим бъдещето.
