ESACH wants to commemorate the anniversary of the signing of the Convention Concerning the Protection of World Cultural and Natural Heritage (Paris, November 16, 1972) with a week dedicated to World Heritage knowledge highlighting seven "places that connect" Europe.
From the European Students' Association for Cultural Heritage network we have proposed to take another step in our role as one of the references in the field of dissemination of knowledge about cultural heritage among young Europeans, so this week we want to do a special activity focused in places declared by UNESCO as World Heritage in European territory.
Under the theme “Places that Connect”, we have chosen seven elements: landscapes, cities, archaeological remains, buildings, etc. which give an interesting and even unknown vision of Europe:
- Delos (Greece)
- City of Bath (UK)
- Genova (Italy)
- Canal du Midi (France)
- Røros Mining Town and the Circumference (Norway)
- Struve Geodetic Arc (Belarus, Estonia, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Republic of Moldova, Russian Federation, Sweden and Ukraine)
- Hortobágy National Park - the Puszta (Hungary)
In this way, from Monday 11 to Sunday 17 we will be publishing a daily post / tweet with information about them. But that is not all.
We want everyone to participate! Share on the social networks with us World Heritage sites. Mention us is our accounts (@esach_spirit) or use the hashtag #ESACHeritage.
With this week we also kick off our new section of Wednesdays in Social Networks: #ESACHeritage, where every week we will know places of the immense European cultural heritage and where we also invite you to participate by sending your suggestions (More information soon)
