From 25 to 27 September 2018, nearly 200 mountain stakeholders from all over Europe gathered in Vatra Dornei, Romania, to participate in the European Mountain Convention on “Cultural Heritage as an Engine for Creativity, Innovation and Socioeconomic Development of Mountain areas”, organised jointly by Euromontana and several Romanian organisations, including the Mountain Areas Agency and the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development.
Following three days of study visits, exchanges of good practices and debates, participants called upon EU, national and regional institutions to better recognise this mountain cultural and natural heritage, in a common Declaration.
