Second Regional Seminar of the European Commission/Council of Europe joint programme “The Faro Way”

As follow up of the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage and in co-operation with the Cultural Heritage Agency of the Netherlands, a second seminar of the joint project “The Faro Way: enhanced participation in cultural heritage” was  organised in Maastricht and Heerlen on 16-17 May 2019 with representatives from seven countries, Dutch cultural heritage stakeholders and international experts.

Through presentations, discussions on selected topics and field visits to heritage-driven initiatives, the seminar provided an opportunity to explain in detail the Faro Convention approach to cultural heritage and to exchange on the actions that stakeholders, and particularly authorities, may have in supporting the Convention signature, ratification and implementation. The potential of cultural heritage to regenerate communities was also discussed through the experience of Heerlen, a city in a former mining region.
