The 7 Most Endangered Programme, launched in 2013, is run by Europa Nostra in partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute and with the support of the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
It is part of a civil society campaign to save Europe’s endangered heritage and provides a grant of €10,000 per listed site to assist in implementing an agreed activity that will contribute to saving the threatened site.
After the launch, last 29th June, of the Call for Nominations by Europa Nostra, the applications were discussed by an international Advisory Panel, comprising experts in history, archaeology, architecture, conservation, project analysis and finance, which selected 12 endangered heritage sites:
- Zogu Bridge, ALBANIA
