ICOMOS Italy is pleased to announce that the special dedicated website for the 18th General Assembly and Scientific Symposium “Heritage and Landscape as Human Values” taking place in Florence, Italy, from 9 to 14 November 2014 is up and running.
Dear ICOMOS members, colleagues and friends,
The ICOMOS International Secretariat will be moving to its new premises in Charenton-le-Pont (near Paris – 10 minutes by subway from Place de la Bastille) in the week of 26 May.
The whole team is involved in preparing and packing our documentation, archives etc. for the move and re-installing everything in our new offices. We therefore thank you for your understanding that during the month of May and into mid-June, we will not be able to respond to all queries and will only be able to concentrate on urgent priorities.
Paris, 18 April 2014
ICOMOS, through its International Scientific Committee on Historic Towns and Villages (CIVVIH) and its Romanian National Committee, has expressed its strong concerns about the safeguarding of the heritage of the historic city of Bucharest in a letter addressed to the highest authorities in the Romanian national government, the Romanian Ministry of Culture and the Bucharest city administration on Friday 18 April 2014, the International Day for Monuments and Sites.
Theme for 18 April 2014: "Heritage of Commemoration"
We wish all ICOMOS members and friends a very instructive and rewarding International Day for Monuments and Sites.
Visit the 2014 Events page - ICOMOS Committees and other organisers from over 40 countries have sent us information on their activities, and the number keeps on growing.
If your Committee or organisation did not plan an event this year - make sure you do so in 2015!
For immediate release (27 February 2014)
Download the statement issued by the Blue Shield, of which ICOMOS is a founding member, on the worrying situation of cultural heritage in Ukraine.
This statement was elaborated in close cooperation with ICOMOS Ukraine and the Ukraine National Blue Shield Committee presided by the President of ICOMOS Ukraine, Mykola Yakovyna.
On behalf of ICOMOS Italy, ICOMOS has the pleasure of launching the call for papers for the ICOMOS Youth Forum “Facilitating entry into working life for young professionals” taking place in the context of the 18th General Assembly on 11 November 2014 at the Auditorio al Duomo, Florence, Italy.
Considering the low number of comments received on the review of the Ethical Commitment Statement - also a part of the General Consultation - we have decided to extend the deadline for comments on that specific subject. We invite ICOMOS members to examine the proposed modification to the Ethical Commitment Statement (click here) and send their comments to the International Secretariat at firstname.lastname@example.org by 26 February 2014 inclusive.
