In a resolution adopted by the Standing Committee meeting in Paris on March 8th 2013, the Assembly of the Council of Europe has made a series of practical recommendations to member States with a view to preserving Europe’s industrial heritage.
To ensure that such protection is effective, the PACE has proposed that a European label for industrial heritage be developed. According to the conclusions of the rapporteur on this issue, Ismeta Dervoz (Bosnia and Herzegovina, EPP/CD), the Assembly has also invited the EU and UNESCO to consider the possibility of launching, together with the Council of Europe, a European Industrial Heritage Year in 2015, referring to the E-FAITH campaign.
