Proceedings of the XI European Mountain Convention are now available

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.

The cultural heritage is particularly rich and diversified in mountain areas. It includes natural sites, monuments but also, agronomic, forestry and food practices, or traditions. “As a real asset rooted in the territory, a place-specific resource, cultural heritage requires better valorisation and gives future prospects to our youth and our mountains” explains Juanan Gutierrez, President of Euromontana.

Following two days of conference, exchanges of good practices and debates, the representatives of Euromontana and participants hammered out a common declaration, to call upon EU, national and regional institutions to better recognise this mountain cultural and natural heritage, including in this European Year of Culture and Heritage.

To have a better understanding of the richness of the presentations and good practices, the proceedings of this conference are now available:

  • Proceedings of all the plenary sessions are available here
  • Proceedings of all the thematic workshops with presentation of Good Practices are available here
  • The final declaration of Vatra Dornei is available here

You can also have a look at the pictures and the final video of the event on the event’s webpage.
