Integrated cultural heritage conservation
An integrated conservation of cultural heritage can be achieved through a more coordinated cooperation among all the public, institutional and private actors concerned. The right to heritage is one of our human rights, as the conservation and sustainable use of heritage stimulate the social and cultural development of people and improve the quality of life. Heritage plays an important role in building a more cohesive, peaceful and democratic society, accelerates sustainable development, and stimulates cultural diversity and modern creativity.
The protection of cultural heritage includes identifying heritage, recording, studying and interpreting it, conserving it in a comprehensive manner and including it in modern life, developing the awareness of its value, facilitating access to it, informing and educating about it, recognising its potentials for economic, social and sustainable development, and continuously including it in development projects at local and regional levels. We include knowledge of heritage in education and training at all levels and try to manage heritage protection and conservation in dialogue with all stakeholders.
