Council of Europe "Europe, a common heritage" Campaign

Report

Committee on Culture and Education

by Mr Takis Hadjidemetriou, Cyprus, Socialist Group

Summary

The report summarises the main objectives of the European campaign and notably the extension from conservation of the physical heritage to the social dimension, recognition of the importance of diversity and tolerance.

Written midway in the campaign, it recommends further involvement at national level and in particular in parliaments.

It also calls for co-ordination in the work of intergovernmental organisations and the formulation of clear and practical proposals for follow-up in the Council of Europe.

The main activities and events associated with the campaign are listed.

I.        Draft recommendation

1. The Assembly welcomes the Council of Europe’s “Europe, a common heritage campaign” and in particular as a means of bringing Greater Europe together to promote cultural diversity. The Assembly is also aware of the political and social relevance of respect for such diversity, in particular with regard to minorities.

2. This campaign has been appropriately timed to mark a quarter of a century since European Architectural Heritage Year of 1975. It responds to the Assembly’s call for an event to recognise the common heritage of Europe as a whole following enlargement.

3. It is an occasion on which to highlight the main advances in conservation policy. In particular the Assembly welcomes the extension of integrated conservation from urban planning to the environment and of the notion of heritage from buildings to objects, from archaeological sites to museums, from the material to the immaterial heritage of religion, customs, language or music.

4. As the Committee of Ministers has decided to include the natural heritage in the campaign, the Assembly recalls its recommendations in this area and in particular on the need for the adoption and opening for signature of the European Landscape Convention.

5. The Assembly would also ask the Committee of Ministers if this is not an appropriate moment to open negotiations on the European Charter for the Danube Basin that had been shelved in 1998.

6. The Assembly regrets the recent targeting of the cultural heritage in areas of political conflict. It recalls the mandate given to its General Rapporteur to mediate in such situations (Recommendation 788 (1976)). It would hope that the campaign could promote a more positive image of the cultural heritage as something to be enjoyed and shared.

7. The Assembly has itself several ongoing activities that should be seen as fitting into the campaign, and notably the preparation of reports on cathedrals and other major religious buildings, on the maritime and fluvial heritage, on disused hospitals and military buildings and on cultural tourism.

8. The Assembly has so far been represented at the introductory events of the campaign. Its respective committees, in particular but not exclusively those concerned with the cultural and natural heritage, are continuing to follow the main activities of the campaign.

9. The Assembly encourages national parliaments to hold at least one specific debate on the cultural and natural heritage issues raised by the campaign.

10. With regard to the conduct of the “Europe, a common heritage” campaign, the Assembly recommends that the Committee of Ministers

i. call on governments to ensure activities are launched in each country;

ii. call on member governments, on a national basis but also internationally, to increase support to non-governmental institutions and organisations pursuing the aims of this campaign;

iii. take the initiative in order to encourage co-ordination of the activity of intergovernmental organisations in these fields;

iv. draw on the experience of this campaign to formulate clear and practical proposals for subsequent action by the Council of Europe in the heritage area.

II.        Explanatory memorandum by Takis Hadjidemetriou

Introduction

The “Europe, a common heritage” campaign was initially planned to run from September 1999 to September 2000. It was launched on schedule in Bucharest and Sibiu (Romania) but is likely to last to the end of the present year. The European Ministers responsible for the cultural heritage will then meet in Portoroz (Slovenia) in April 2001 and carry out a political evaluation of the campaign.

This is therefore an interim report. Its aim is to inform the Assembly on the campaign, to encourage parliamentary involvement at both European and national levels, and to enable comments to be made on the future conduct and direction of the campaign and its aftermath.

Background

“European Architectural Heritage Year” of 1975 was the first occasion on which the Council of Europe brought the heritage to the attention of the general public. The main message of the campaign was that of integrated conservation, which essentially meant the inclusion of heritage considerations in planning. The notion of collective European responsibility was also evoked.

The Parliamentary Assembly played a central role through its active Sub-Committee on Monuments and Sites, and in particular through Lord Duncan-Sandys, who combined the roles of Assembly rapporteur, President of Europa Nostra, and Chairman of the European Organising Committee for the campaign.

Though largely successful in getting its message “A future for our past” across, the 1975 campaign was very much limited to the architectural heritage and did not include east European non-member states. There were also problems in ensuring follow up - the national committees were not maintained and the future of intergovernmental co-operation in the Council of Europe was itself in question.

The Assembly has helped in counteracting these tendencies. Heritage has also been a major area of its own activity and has been extended from buildings to include such fields as archaeology, cultural objects, the art trade and museums as well as the non-material heritage (pilgrim routes, minor languages, music, religion etc).

With the prospect of enlargement of cultural co-operation to the whole of Europe, the Assembly joined in 1992 with Europa Nostra (at that time presided over by Mr de Koster, former President of the Assembly) to call for a second Council of Europe heritage campaign to convey a broader message to the broader audience (see Recommendation 1172).

The “Europe, a common heritage” campaign

The present campaign has a more general message than that of 1975. It was decided by the Second Summit of the Heads of State and Government (Strasbourg, October 1997) in the spirit of the Vienna Summit of 1993. It has therefore political goals. But it has also social, ethical, cultural, economic and natural aspects. The Campaign Book sums these up in a “message” that the campaign is “proof of a united Europe, brought together through a common heritage enriched by its diversity”. Further uncertainty surrounds the notions of European cultural identity and common cultural heritage. These difficulties are perhaps endemic in the juxtaposition of cultural and political agendas that continues to characterise European cultural co-operation.

This report would however prefer to place emphasis on the positive messages of the campaign.

In the first place it not only maintains but extends the notion of integrated conservation. Planning, funding, promoting and even thinking about the cultural heritage is linked to our approach to organising such policy areas as our social, economic and educational as well as physical environment.

Recognition of the relevance of the religious dimension is a new and significant development.

Secondly the campaign, in line with the development of Assembly work, extends the notion of heritage from architecture to include other physical elements (the furnishings of buildings, objects, archaeological sites, museums) and other sorts of non-physical heritage (music, folklore, language, gastronomy etc as well as the remarkable inclusion of the natural heritage). It also provokes dialogue about what constitutes heritage, about the authenticity of the heritage industry, about tourism.

An important element of this dialogue is the recognition of the importance of diversity and of tolerance. The conflicts in Israel, in Cyprus and in former Yugoslavia have shown how closely the cultural heritage is bound up with potential for conflict. The Parliamentary Assembly has an important role to play in such delicate issues through its General rapporteur on the cultural heritage, a post currently held by Mrs Stepova. Protection of the heritage calls for shared responsibility and the sort of solidarity that was seen in the joint endeavours to protect heritage from earthquake damage in Turkey and Greece.

The third advance made by the “Europe, a common heritage” campaign is that it embraces the whole of Europe. It is based on the Europe of the 47 states signatory to the European Cultural Convention. Observer states such as Israel and Canada are also actively involved.

A fourth important aspect of the campaign is that heritage is enjoyable and should be enjoyed. Heritage is our civilisation and its diversity essential to our identities. But this diversity has to be carefully managed if it is to survive, just as our tastes have to be educated if we are to appreciate it.

Organisation and activities

The present campaign is not co-ordinated around a leading, political personality as was that of 1975 around Lord Duncan-Sandys. Co-ordination has instead been provided by the Council of Europe through the setting up of programmes of international events and transnational projects. The participating states themselves have varied in their approach, structure and programme.

The details of the campaign are published in a “Campaign Book” (currently under revision) but are more immediately available on the Internet site http://culture.coe.fr/patrimonium. The activities are divided between events and national and transnational projects.

The length of this catalogue is in itself testimony to the richness of the subject.

If it is not clear on what grounds projects are included on these lists, there would appear to be no good reason for excluding projects. The campaign label should at this stage and in these circumstances be left open-ended.

Some further comments can be added.

Recommendations for the further conduct of the campaign

Not all countries have shown the same degree of interest. Encouragement can be drawn from comparisons and the power of example.

National Committees (or equivalent operational structures) are a focus for international and for national/local awareness raising. But they must be open-ended and not restricted to central government or one heritage branch.

Parliamentary involvement should be encouraged. Parliamentarians should be represented on national committees as for example in France. They should put questions in parliaments about the campaign and about heritage policies in general. National debates should be held on the heritage issues raised by the campaign.

The Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe is itself setting a good example. Reports are being prepared on the conservation of cathedrals and other major religious buildings (Mr Eversdijk), on disused hospitals and military buildings (Mr Legendre) and on the maritime heritage (Mr O’Hara). We are also involved in consideration of cultural tourism and of the Yiddish heritage. The natural and cultural heritage will be combined in a study of the economic and social situation of rural youth. Various Assembly committees are involved, thus reflecting precisely the openness of the “Europe, a common heritage” campaign. We welcome the active involvement of President Lord Russell-Johnston in the promotion of the campaign.

We are also keen to support the essential contribution of the non-governmental sector. In 1975 Europa Nostra played a central role and is clearly still a central player. The Assembly is joining Europa Nostra in a Congress in Prague on 9-10 June 2000 as a contribution to the campaign. Other non-governmental activity is also to be encouraged. The European Museum Forum could for example be involved, which has for the past 20 or more years campaigned to improve the interface between museums and their publics.

This is also the opportunity to call for greater co-ordination between intergovernmental organisations (in particular between Unesco, the Council of Europe and European Union).

A final question is whether the present campaign, which has succeeded in encompassing the whole of Europe, should also be extended. In the first place we might think of surrounding non-European countries especially in the Mediterranean (Israel has already been mentioned but there is also Egypt and the Magreb). It would not be difficult to link also the European heritage of colonisation (Africa, Australia, India or Latin America) or the heritage of difference (Japan and China). Europe should respond to the challenge of globalisation.

It will be interesting to bring together the pieces for review in 2001. The experience of this campaign should be used for the formulation of clear and practical proposals for subsequent action by the Council of Europe in the heritage area.
