The Framework Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Faro Convention, 2005)

 

European societies, being transformed under the combined effects of the economic crisis, energy transition, demographic or migration factors and a reduction in resources, call for new development models driven by greater democracy, strengthened citizen participation and better governance based on more open, reactive and transparent institutions.

 

In this context, the Council of Europeís Framework Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society is innovative in linking the concept of the "common heritage of Europe" to human rights and the fundamental freedoms for which the Council of Europe remains one of the historic guardians. The Faro Convention provides an original contribution to the issues related to "living together", quality of life and the living environments where citizens wish to prosper.
