 All about the WDEC and an overview of past events.

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.

WDEC 2023: Cemeteries for health and wellbeing

Connecting people with cemeteries can improve their wellbeing, mental health and quality of life. That's why this year's Week of Discovering European Cemeteries, that took place from 26 May to 4 June 2023, celebrated the life-enhancing properties of the cities of the dead.

Event programs are available on our website and social media.
