Three CHwB projects featured in HERITAGE COUNTS publication

We are proud to announce that three different projects from our Western Balkan offices are part of a newly published book, Heritage Counts: Reflections on Cultural Heritage Theories and Practices.

“Heritage Counts,” an international conference on the economic, social, environmental and cultural impact of built cultural heritage was organised on 3-6 February 2015 by the Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation in Leuven, Belgium. The conference was linked to  the Cultural Heritage Counts for Europe project, funded by the EU Culture Programme (2007-2013) and with the support of the project’s lead partner Europa Nostra.

The four-day agenda included more than 30 presentations about discourse, strategies and case studies dealing with the economic, social, environmental and cultural impacts of cultural heritage. Presenters came from all over Europe, as well as from China, Ecuador, Japan and the United States.

Taking into account the many fruitful discussions and positive messages on the relevance of this topic, a rigorous publication that encompasses the conference’s content and quality was developed. After an extensive editing process, the Heritage Counts was published!

In this book, CHwB Western Balkan offices are presented with three different projects under the chapter “Linking management, conservation and sustainable development”:
