Building on the year of Cultural Heritage (2018 – launched in Cyprus), the European Commission has published a European Framework for Action on Cultural Heritage. This Framework for Action acknowledges that cultural heritage is a common good and a shared resource which raised awareness of a common European history and values and reinforces a sense of belonging to a common European cultural and political space. The Framework for Action sets a common direction for heritage-related activities at the European level and serves as an inspiration for regions and cities in Europe.
Cultural heritage is a resource for the future which must be safeguarded and enhanced and mainstreamed in other policies. Cultural heritage needs an integrated approach that cuts across a wide range of policy areas: regional, urban, and rural development, education, social cohesion, digital transformation, environment, tourism, accessibility as well as research and innovation. This wider perspective of cultural heritage requires more attention to evidence-based policy making and particularly the measurement of the impact of actions on cultural heritage.
The workshop will therefore examine built cultural heritage from two main angles:
- the development of European and national strategies for cultural heritage and how these are linked with funding programmes such as cohesion policy
- monitoring and assessing the impact of built cultural heritage.
