Europa Nostra Congress. Forum on Social Participation in Heritage Protection: Spanish, European and Hispano-American Experiences

Forum on Social Participation in Heritage Protection: Spanish, European and Hispano-American Experiences

Organised by Europa Nostra in close cooperation with its country representation Hispania Nostra, the 2016 Congress contributed to Hispania Nostra’s 40th anniversary celebrations, and took place between 22 May and 27 May. The Congress programme included the exhibition ‘Recognising Spanish Heritage in Europe’, displaying a selection of winners of our European Heritage Awards from Spain between 1978 and 2016.

Moreover, on 25 May, at the Conde Duque Cultural Centre, the full-day Forum ‘Social Participation in Heritage Protection’offered a platform for rich debate on how social participation in heritage has developed over the last years, based on the experience of different stakeholders from Spain and other European countries as well as from Latin America. The ‘Madrid Declaration’ based on the Forum Conclusions was adopted during the General Assembly of Europa Nostra on the morning of 26 May.
