The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper is now available in French and Spanish
The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper “Putting Europe’s shared heritage at the heart of the European Green Deal”, which focuses on the role of cultural heritage in achieving the ambitions of the European Green Deal, is now available in French and Spanish.
The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper was produced by Europa Nostra in close cooperation with ICOMOS and the Climate Heritage Network, with the input of other members of the European Heritage Alliance. It is supported by the European Investment Bank Institute and the Creative Europe programme of the European Union. The English version of the Paper was released in March 2021.
“The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper aims to integrate cultural heritage into climate action and inspire the mobilisation of the heritage community for transformative climate action. Holding global warming to below 1.5C is our best chance at sparing the planet, its people and their cultures from the worst impacts of climate change. The European Green Deal helps put the world on that path. The future of Europe’s cultural heritage depends on its success. At the same time, Europe’s shared values and common heritage offer undeniable potential to help accomplish the Green Deal’s mission. This is why cultural heritage is essential to the success of the European Green Deal” stated ICOMOS member Andrew Potts, the Lead Author of the Paper.
The French version of the Paper was prepared by the translation service of the European Investment Bank Institute and ICOMOS Spain prepared the Spanish version of the European Cultural Heritage Green Paper through a group of members comprised of José Alberto Alonso, Camila Burgos, Beñat Iturralde and Clara Villalba.
