Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe report presented at the UNESCO session

2015-06-30
During the 39th session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee in Bonn, Prof. Jacek Purchla, the vice-president of the Polish National Commission for UNESCO, together with Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović, secretary general of Europa Nostra, presented Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe report to Irina Bokova, director general of UNESCO.

The report discusses the role cultural heritage plays in the socio-economic development of Europe and its impact on economy, society, culture and environment. Its recommendations emphasise the need to conduct regular research on the impact of cultural heritage. Such research is crucial to show that investments in cultural heritage pay off by positively influencing our lives (e.g. by fostering social capital or generating new jobs). 

Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe was a two-year project where the ICC, together with a KU Leuven team, undertook the task of mapping and critically analysing studies on the impact of cultural heritage.
