To the personal attention of all Members of the European Heritage Alliance
I wish to thank, most sincerely, all members of our European Heritage Alliance, who have sent us their explicit endorsement and some comments with regard to the draft text of our Manifesto. Together with Harry Verwayen and his team, we have done our utmost to take most of your input on board, while keeping the text as short and punchy.
Please note that we have enlisted all European and international networks which form part of our Alliance as the co-signatories of this text.
As you know, the Manifesto is accompanied by an annex which contains a non-exhaustive list of important reference documents. IMPORTANT: Additional links can always be added - please send them to Lorena since this list remains a work in progress.
DISSEMINATION TO EU LEADERS: The Manifesto will be sent, in the course of this week, to all Presidents of the European Institutions. We shall also ask Croatian Minister of Culture to share this Manifesto with all EU Ministers of Culture ahead of their next meeting of 19 May. We shall also communicate it to all EU Heads of State or Government and to relevant members of the European Commission.
TRANSLATION: Our ambition is also to translate our Manifesto in as many European languages as possible. Europa Nostra will take care of translating the text into French, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and German. Europeana will translate it in Dutch. We would be very grateful if you could help us translate the text also in other European languages. Please liaise with Lorena on this.
SIGN NOW & HELP US GATHER AS MANY AS 5000 SIGNATURES:
The Europe Day Manifesto is now open for individual signatures by heritage professionals and volunteers from all over Europe and beyond.
We would like to ask you, your Presidents and other Board members, to show your support by signing also nominally and individually this Manifesto.
We also thank you for encouraging other members from your respective circles to sign the Manifesto. We hope to gather in the following weeks at least 5000 signatures.
If each of us engage pro-actively in mobilising people to sign this Manifesto, we are sure that we can reach this ambitious objective.
