Eurocities, in partnership with KEA, ERRIN, Europa Nostra and the Architects Council of Europe, has been selected by the European Commission to implement Cultural heritage in action, a peer-learning scheme financed by the European Union on cultural heritage to support exchanges between large numbers of cities, regions and stakeholders, thus building a broad learning community.
Towards a sustainable model of reusing old premises for cultural uses: the example of Kaapeli in Helsinki.
The KAAPELI model demonstrates how to transform a significant heritage asset while managing financial risk. The critical success factors included the company owning the assets, having long-term tenancies and a mix of services and activities.
More than 80 examples of good practices from across Europe were collected in a new report to uncover the impact of climate change on cultural heritage, and to suggest green and sustainable solutions to combat it.
