“ [Cities] provide the locale for many of the great issues of our time, including exponential growth or uncontrolled mass tourism. These issues impact dramatically on the conservation and management of urban heritage. 

Sophia Labadi received the 2008 Cultural Policy Research Award for her work evaluating the socio-economic impacts of selected regenerated heritage sites in Europe. We talk to Sophia about the impact of the award, international heritage, and on her future plans. 

TANDEM EUROPE - More than 160 organisations responded to the new Tandem Europe cultural exchange programme open call. 46 organisations from 18 different EU countries have been invited to join the beginning of the programme, which will kick off with the Partner Forum in Milan in mid-October. This event will offer an intensive programme with workshops, conversations and other activities to inspire participants to decide with which partner they would like to cooperate and formulate a collaboration proposal for a joint (Tandem) application.

SUMMER READS - The summer months are a time for relaxation and reflection – a chance to explore new places and new ideas. With this in mind, we have compiled some recommended reading materials to accompany you on your journeys this summer – including articles and books from ECF’s own Library and some from our partners’ collections too.

We hope you enjoy them and we wish you wonderful and relaxing summer.
