Estonia signs the Faro Convention

In the presence of Mr Bjørn Berge, Deputy Secretary General of the Council of Europe, Ambassador Rasmus Lumi, Permanent Representative of Estonia to the Council of Europe, signed the Council of Europe Framework Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society on 18 March 2021. This latest signature brings the total number of signatures to 7, in addition to the 20 member States that have ratified the Convention. Estonia becomes the second Baltic country to sign the Faro Convention after Latvia. With a rich cultural heritage (both tangible and intangible) and as a pioneer in e-participation processes, Estonia’s signature should further encourage citizen engagement in cultural heritage governance and the development of additional bottom-up initiatives in this domain.
