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
