UK Launch ICOMOS European Cultural Heritage Green Paper


UK Launch of
ICOMOS European
Cultural Heritage Green Paper

Putting Europe’s shared heritage at the heart of the European Green Deal 

Join this online event to be there for the official UK launch of the European Cultural Heritage Green Paper.



The European Cultural Heritage Green Paper was launched in March 2021 and is designed to outline the role of cultural heritage in achieving the ambitions of the European Green Deal and in supporting transformative climate action for Europe. The Green Paper was produced by Europa Nostra in close cooperation with ICOMOS and the Climate Heritage Network (CHN), with the input of other members of the European Heritage Alliance. It is supported by the European Investment Bank Institute and the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.

The Green Paper is based on the framework defined in the 2019 ICOMOS Report ‘The Future of Our Pasts: Engaging Cultural Heritage in Climate Action.’ Prepared by the ICOMOS Climate Change and Heritage Working Group (CCHWG) with input from ICOMOS International Scientific Committees and ICOMOS National Committees (including UK’s national committee) and other experts from the United Kingdom, it was designed to provide a benchmark against which heritage communities may measure their climate action. It is a tool to help climate change policy makers increase their understanding of and engagement with cultural heritage and gives recommendations aimed at both heritage operators and policymakers. ICOMOS’ expert knowledge, can contribute to this endeavour.

The event will be introduced by Teresa Patricio, President of ICOMOS.

Andrew Potts, Coordinator of the CCHWG and lead author of the Green Paper will present the key themes of the paper.

Event date and time:  Tue, 13 July 2021, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
