On 28 November in Paris, Europa Nostra’s Executive President, Denis de Kergorlay, will give a lecture on Europa Nostra, entitled ‘De la nostalgie au Bonheur d’être Européen: 50 ans d’engagement citoyens en faveur de la réhabilitation du patrimoine culturel de l’Europe’. The lecture will coincide with the exact date in which Europa Nostra was born 50 years ago, precisely in Paris. This event will be held at the Cercle de l’Union Interalliée and is expected to be attended by 300-400 persons, including many French and international dignitaries from the worlds of culture, politics and business.

In his lecture, the Executive President of Europa Nostra will refer to the landmark moments in the history of the organisation and also to the challenges which Europa Nostra faces today. Denis de Kergorlay will also highlight the three pillars of Europa Nostra’s action: promoting the best practices in the heritage field through its Awards Scheme run in partnership with the European Commission; campaigning to save Europe’s endangered monuments, sites and landscapes, most recently through ‘The 7 Most Endangered’ programme, developed in partnership with the European Investment Bank Institute; and lobbying for better policies and regulations for heritage at national and European levels. Special tribute will be paid to all those who over the years have contributed to the growth of the organisation. The lecture will be accompanied by a selection of video clips and photos, thus creating a true visual show.
