Dear ICOMOS members, colleagues and friends,
The ICOMOS International Secretariat will be moving to its new premises in Charenton-le-Pont (near Paris – 10 minutes by subway from Place de la Bastille) in the week of 26 May.
The whole team is involved in preparing and packing our documentation, archives etc. for the move and re-installing everything in our new offices. We therefore thank you for your understanding that during the month of May and into mid-June, we will not be able to respond to all queries and will only be able to concentrate on urgent priorities.
Paris, 18 April 2014
ICOMOS, through its International Scientific Committee on Historic Towns and Villages (CIVVIH) and its Romanian National Committee, has expressed its strong concerns about the safeguarding of the heritage of the historic city of Bucharest in a letter addressed to the highest authorities in the Romanian national government, the Romanian Ministry of Culture and the Bucharest city administration on Friday 18 April 2014, the International Day for Monuments and Sites.
Theme for 18 April 2014: "Heritage of Commemoration"
We wish all ICOMOS members and friends a very instructive and rewarding International Day for Monuments and Sites.
Visit the 2014 Events page - ICOMOS Committees and other organisers from over 40 countries have sent us information on their activities, and the number keeps on growing.
If your Committee or organisation did not plan an event this year - make sure you do so in 2015!
