Europa Nostra has launched the 2020 edition of it’s 7 most Endangered programme. The campaign aims to draw attention to endangered heritage sites and to mobilize public and private partners to find them a viable future. The organisation calls Europeans to nominate sites with the support of any of the national members before July 1st.

Europa Nostra’s 7 Most Endangered
The 7 Most Endangered programme was launched as a biennial project in January 2013, with this edition being the fifth installment. After an international advisory panel has selected a shortlist of sites, Europa Nostra’s own board will announce the final list of 7 most endangered sites in March 2020.

Selection of the sites
The monuments and sites are selected while taking into account their outstanding heritage and cultural value as well as the imminent danger that they are facing. The engagement of local communities and the commitment of public and private stakeholders to saving these sites are also considered crucial. Another main criterion is the potential of these sites to act as a catalyst for sustainable socio-economic development. Since it’s launch, 29 sites have been selected for the programme.
