European Cultural Heritage Review

No. 1/2007 and a Special Edition

Annual Report 2006

Europa Nostra, 2007

Three new publications by Europa Nostra, Culturelink long-standing member and collaborator, again draw the attention of their readers. The new edition of the European Cultural Heritage Review (No1/2007) contains a variety of articles illustrating the diversity of the rich European heritage, and of the issues at stake in protecting it and in raising the awareness of that heritage. A special dossier on 'The Saint Petersburg Phenomenon' was inspired by the events surrounding the celebrating of the 15th edition of the European Heritage Days which took place in St. Petersburg in September 2006. In the Review, St. Petersburg is introduced and portrayed through articles of its past and present development, and the issues covered show how concerns regarding this city's cultural heritage resonate with the concerns of other European cities.

The Special Edition of the Review is dedicated to the Laureates of the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards 2006 (No 2/2007). Laureates, in total thirty-three of them were selected from three categories: Conservation projects (Architectural heritage, Cultural landscapes, Works of art and Archaeological sites); Studies in the field of cultural heritage; and Dedicated service to heritage conservation. More than ever before, the awarded heritage achievements are marked by multilateral cooperation counterbalanced by local engagement. This year again, a Poster on the Award Laureates was also launched.

Europa Nostra's Annual Report 2006 describes the many ways Europa Nostra has been active in the last year, ranging from policy meetings, both internal and with the Council of Europe and the European Union; holding congresses and attending forums on specific heritage issues; campaigning in favour of endangered heritage; and generally working to raise awareness, through the Awards Scheme, the European Heritage Days, publications and other means, of the importance of Europe's cultural heritage. The Report also brings information on the organization's finances as well as on member organizations and support by partners.
