We already have a "Connection" for the "Europa Nostra prize for Conservation"http://www.worldheritagesite.org/connection/Europa+Nostra+Award
But Europa Nostra also "runs" (and has been doing so since 2013) a (mainly) biennial list for the "7 Most Endangered" Heritage sites in Europe. In so doing it joins other "endangered lists" such as that operated by the World Heritage Fund
As might be expected WHS and TWHS sites do figure.
The 2018 "shortlist" of 12 sites (to be reduced to 7 on 15 Mar)) has just been published - See http://www.europanostra.org/12-sites-shortlisted-7-most-endangered-2018/
Those interested in "Heritage" generally should find some interesting sites among them (some perhaps might find their way onto future T Lists?) but I noted 2 particular points of interest -
a. The (T)WHS "candidates" - Vienna, Gjirokastra, David Gareji (T)
b. The presence of the Bulgarian Communist Brutalist Memorial of Buzludzha. Any Forum "members" going to this year's "meet up" in Bulgaria might be interested to fit in a visit as it is close to Kazanlak. See - https://www.lonelyplanet.com/bulgaria/veliko-tarnovo-central-mountains/travel-tips-an d-articles/bulgarias-ufo-the-spell-of-the-abandoned-buzludzha-monument/40625c8c-8a11- 5710-a052-1479d276292a
I have had a quick look at the entries from 2013- 2017 and they also contain a fair mix of (T)WHS sites - perhaps we should have a "Connection" for "On Europa Nostra "7 Most Endangered List"??
What isn't quite clear to me is what actually happens to those sites so inscribed and can/does anything much change in the year(s) during which they are listed? The objective is stated as being to "mobilize public and private partners on a local, national and European level to find a viable future for those sites
" but, as far as I can see, there is no European money directly tied to a listing. Nevertheless, it would appear that they (or their agents) actually APPLY for this registration so it can't be considered a "badge of shame"!! Perhaps they move from this list to the "Prize for Conservation"!!
