European Industrial Heritage Year in 2015

logo E-FAITH

In a resolution adopted yesterday, 8th of March, by the Standing Committee meeting in Paris, the Assembly of the Council of Europe has made a series of practical recommendations to member States with a view to preserving Europe’s industrial heritage.

To ensure that such protection is effective, the PACE (Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe) has proposed that a European label for industrial heritage be developed. According to the conclusions of the rapporteur on this issue, Ismeta Dervoz (Bosnia and Herzegovina, EPP/CD), the Assembly has also invited the EU and UNESCO to consider the possibility of launching, together with the Council of Europe, a European Industrial Heritage Year in 2015, as proposed by E-FAITH.

The information on the E-FAITH campaign is on:
