Recommendations of the “EYCH 2018: International Perspectives Forum” now available
Last 23 April 2018, the Cultural Diplomacy Platform organised a Forum entitled “European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018: International Perspectives” in Brussels. It was an opportunity to look at the international perspectives of the main themes of European Year of Cultural Heritage (EYCH). Cultural heritage professionals from outside Europe were invited to exchange and share experiences with European experts, cultural operators and EU policy makers. The Forum was attended by 250 participants and was widely relayed on social media.
ICOMOS was strongly involved in the Forum through Christer Gustafsson, Secretary General of the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Economics of Conservation, who participated in its organisation, and several Panellists: Toshiyuki Kono, President of ICOMOS; Christophe Rivet, President of ICOMOS Canada; Andrew Potts, Coordinator of the ICOMOS Working Group on Climate Change and Heritage.
