European Cultural Heritage Green Paper published in French and Spanish

Full Paper: English | French | Spanish

The Full Paper, including the Executive Summary, of the European Cultural Heritage Green Paper “Putting Europe’s shared heritage at the heart of the European Green Deal” has just been published in French and Spanish. The original version of the Paper in English was released in March during an online event hosted by Europa Nostra.

The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper was produced by Europa Nostra in close cooperation with ICOMOS and the Climate Heritage Network, with the input of other members of the European Heritage Alliance. It was supported by the European Investment Bank Institute and the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

This ground-breaking document demonstrates the relevance of cultural heritage for achieving the ambitious goals of the European Green Deal, launched by the European Commission to make Europe the first carbon-free continent by 2050. The European Green Deal states that “All EU actions and policies will have to contribute to the European Green Deal objectives”. The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper gives the response: Count Cultural Heritage in!

The French version of the Paper was prepared by the translation service of the European Investment Bank Institute. It was presented for the first time at the occasion of the debate “Pour une Europe de la culture et du patrimoine : des paroles aux actes”, which was organised by Europa Nostra, le Collège des Bernardins and l’Institut Jacques Delors on 20 October in the Collège des Bernardins in Paris.

The Spanish version of the Paper was prepared by ICOMOS National Spanish Committee (ICOMOS España) and its team composed of José Alberto Alonso, Camila Burgos, Beñat Iturralde and Clara Villalba. It was presented for the first time during the digital debate “The Future of Cultural Heritage in Europe” organised on 25 November by Hispania Nostra.

We are grateful to all colleagues involved in these volunteer language translations of the European Cultural Heritage Green Paper carried out to ensure the broadest possible access. If you wish to help us spread the project outcomes in your language, please contact our Brussels office:
