About WDEC

Each year, within 1 week, cemeteries across Europe organize events and activities to raise European citizens awareness of the importance of significant cemeteries. Exhibitions, concerts, guided tours, seminars, workshops and other activities take place. It is the most important event and project of our association, exposing the cemeteries in a different perspective to all their visitors.
