Citizens and visitors share the value of the public space as a common good. Certain sites or monuments require conciliation processes in order to equitably resolve situations where different communities attribute contrasting values to the same heritage. Private owners also contribute to sharing a heritage by opening up their heritage and communicating their knowledge.

 Recommended courses of action for S4

  • Highlight the history and value of the place in public areas and monuments in order to preserve, create or recreate the continuity of the agora
  • Encourage urban development incorporating cultural heritage to foster the use of public areas as meeting places
  • Support and promote public and private initiatives using cultural heritage as a place of reflection, exchange and creation
  • Develop narratives highlighting the intercultural values to be found in the movable, immovable and intangible heritage
  • Participate in the Council of Europe’s Intercultural Cities programme
