Outcomes of the European Cultural Heritage Green Paper launch webinar

Share

The on line event took place last 22th March as a cooperation between Europa Nostra and other heritage, climate and financial organizations. More than 500 people joined the meeting and shared reflections about the great challenges targeted by the Green Deal and the fundamental role played by cultural heritage for the success of its mission.
This concept was emphasised from several perspectives by all representatives of the main organizations that supported the adoption of the Cultural Heritage Green Paper: Hermann Parzinger, Executive President of Europa Nostra; Andrew Potts, main author of the Paper and Coordinator of the ICOMOS Climate Change and Heritage Working Group; Francisco de Paula Coelho and Ambroise Fayolle, respectively Dean of the Investment Bank Institute and Vice-President of the EIB responsible for Climate Action; Mariya Gabriel, European Commissioner for Innovation, Research, Culture, Education and Youth; Teresa Patricio, new President of ICOMOS.
As a follow-up, Europa Nostra plans to launch a European multi-stakeholder platform on heritage and climate action in order to build on and deepen the collective knowledge developed with this Paper and to engage all parties concerned into ensuring adequate implementation of the proposed recommendations.
The European Investment Bank Institute has also announced the introduction of a new strand of its future activities dedicated to the topic “Cultural Heritage and Climate Action”.
This policy and advocacy document will also be highly relevant for other policy priorities of the European Union, such as the recently launched New European Bauhaus initiative of the European Commission, of which Europa Nostra is an official partner.
