Europa Nostra contributes to Croatia’s EU Presidency Conference on Cultural Heritage at Risk

Europa Nostra was delighted to attend the conference “Fostering European Cooperation for Cultural Heritage at Risk” that took place on 27-28 February 2020 in Dubrovnik, Croatia. The objective of the conference was to discuss the state of play at national, international and European level of preparedness strategies and to raise awareness on the available instruments at EU level for risk reduction, both in terms of innovation and management.

Moreover, the event stressed also the importance of the integration of cultural heritage in disaster risk management and the necessity to foster international and European coordination at multiple levels, especially in case of disasters with a transnational impact.

Around 160 participants from national, European and International institutions, such as the European Commission, UNESCO, ICOMOS and ICCROM, universities and civil society organisations attended the conference, certainly one of the most relevant cultural heritage events organised during the Croatian Presidency.
