There are 44 ICOMOS National Committees in Europe. Within the informal framework of the ICOMOS Europe Group, these Committees cooperate bilaterally, multilaterally, at sub-regional and regional level – and actively participate in ICOMOS’ international activities, in particular with the International Scientific Committees (for whom many Committees have national mirror Scientific Committees). The Europe Group holds an annual meeting, accompanied by a scientific conference and side-events, hosted on a rotational basis by one of the Committees, and a working meeting during the ICOMOS General Assemblies.
ICOMOS Europe Group releases Symposium proceedings on Neighborhood conflicts and neighborhoods co-operations in Europe
This e-publication contains the proceedings of the Scientific symposium that was held on the occasion of the annual meeting of the ICOMOS Europe Group (Berlin, 3–6 June 2017). The report presents neighborhood conflicts and co-operations in Europe with 15 examples of shared War Heritage (from boundary stones to the Green belt and the Iron curtain) and trans-boundary cooperation projects in many fields such as comparative studies, monument restructuring, and conservation of rural and biological areas. It also includes a section about the creation of a European Heritage label Network to commemorate the European history heritage.
The aim of the European Year of Cultural Heritage is to encourage more people to discover and engage with Europe's cultural heritage, and to reinforce a sense of belonging to a common European space. The slogan for the year is: Our heritage: where the past meets the future.*
As one of the official “stakeholders” for the European Year, ICOMOS will participate by organizing activites and events at international level and locally through its National Committees.
