Romanian edition of Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe launched in Bucharest
On 16 September, the Romanian edition of the Executive Summary of the Report ‘Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe’ was launched during a special event in Bucharest organised by the National Institute of Heritage and its Director General Stefan Bâlici, who is also Council Member of Europa Nostra.
The Romanian edition was also presented during the 10th International Conference for Cultural Tourism in Europe organised on 20-21 September in Sibiu by the European Cultural Tourism Network, a Member Organisation of Europa Nostra. The presentation was made by the Vice-President of Europa Nostra Piet Jaspaert.
The ‘Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe’ Report, with its Executive Summary & Strategic Recommendations, demonstrates the multiple benefits of heritage for Europe’s economy, society, culture and environment. This comprehensive Report – produced by Europa Nostra along with five European partners and with the support of the EU Culture programme – has been widely recognised as a key study on the impact of cultural heritage, including in the European Commission’s proposal to organise a European Year of Cultural Heritage in 2018.
The Romanian edition of the ‘Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe’ Executive Summary was produced by the National Institute of Heritage and is introduced by Prof. Dr. Hanna Derer, President of the National Commission of Historic Monuments, and Stefan Bâlici, Director General of the National Institute of Heritage.
With the launch of the Romanian edition, the Executive Summary is now available in 10 languages (Dutch, English, Finnish, German, Italian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Serbian, and Spanish). The Hungarian edition will be presented in the coming weeks.
