Europa Nostra Award
"Europa Nostra, (Latin for Our Europe) the pan-European Federation for Cultural Heritage, is the representative platform of 250 heritage NGOs active in 45 countries across Europe. It is the voice of this vast movement of European civil society active in the field of heritage towards international bodies concerned, in particular the European Union Institutions, the Council of Europe and UNESCO.
Europa Nostra's main goal is to put heritage and its benefits in the mainstream of public consciousness and to make heritage a priority for public policies both at European and national levels. Its specific objectives are to promote, at a European level, high standards of quality in the fields of heritage conservation, architecture, urban and rural planning and to advocate a balanced and sustainable development of urban and rural, built and natural environment.
Europa Nostra supports national and international campaigns for the preservation and rescue of Europe's heritage at risk. It encourages initiatives in favour of the conservation and enhancement of cultural heritage by recognising outstanding heritage achievements, in particular through the running of the European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Awards, in partnership with the European Commission. In early 2006, Europa Nostra was selected as the new Liaison Office for the coordination of the European Heritage Days, a joint action of the Council of Europe and the European Commission." (Wiki).
