Digital Forum Urban Agenda for the EU
Culture and Cultural Heritage in Europe —strengthen—promote—develop
24. November 2020 @ 09:00 — 25. November 2020 @ 13:00 CET
Culture and Cultural Heritage are important cornerstones for the sustainable development of our liv-ing environment. As a resource and potential to create just, green and productive cities, cultural heritage has a profound effect on the cities of Europe and makes essential contributions to the quality of life. But: How to deal with cultural heritage? How to protect and develop it at the same time? And how to put it into value socially, ecologically and economically? The Partnership for Culture and Cultural Heritage of the Urban Agenda for the EU has developed a comprehensive, holistic and pragmatic approach, and it offers interested stakeholders the opportunity to participate in the development of this important European task. The Partnership consists of a network of 30 selected partners from across Europe. This network is currently working on several pilot projects and recommendations, so-called “actions”, to manage cultural heritage and to foster further development while focusing on the existing, grown European city. The Actions and their aims are summarized in an Action Plan.
The German Federal Ministry of the Interior, Building and Community and the Italian National Governmental Agency for Territorial Cohesion invite you to attend the digital Forum Urban Agenda for the EU on the 24th and 25th of November 2020 as part of the EU Council Presidency. During the Forum, the Action Plan on cultural heritage will be discussed and finalized.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the event is planned in a digital format, and attendees will be able to actively participate via interactive online modules. A detailed program will be distributed in time. Please note that the conference will be held in English.
9:00—15:00 on 24 November and 9:00—13:00 on 25 November
