3rd International Symposium
Exchange of experiences between specialists from the European Union and Mexico
Strategies for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage
in health emergency situations
The third International Symposium dedicated to Cultural Heritage is organized by the Delegation of the European Union in Mexico, in collaboration with the Secretariat of Culture of Mexico, the National Institute of Anthropology and History (INAH) and the National Institute of Fine Arts and Literature ( INBAL).
The Symposium "Exchange of experiences between specialists from Mexico and the European Union: Strategies for the preservation of Cultural Heritage", seeks to identify the areas of opportunity that exist in the field of technical cooperation between Mexico and the European Union.
In this way, the event aims to contribute to the joint Communication "Towards an EU strategy for international cultural relations" (2016), which identifies cooperation on cultural heritage as one of the priorities to promote international cultural relations with the EU partner countries. Promoting diversity through international cultural relations is an essential part of the EU's role as a global player.
The COVID-19 pandemic has had a direct and indirect impact on the entire spectrum of EU policies in the short, medium and long term, as well as on its external projection. This Symposium will contribute to building the necessary conditions to prevent future pandemics from having the same negative impact on the Cultural Heritage Sector, through the exchange of good practices and dialogues on policies, regulations, as well as standards and protocols.
Therefore, this event is timely and is aligned with EU policies, as well as with current Mexican initiatives. It is based on the experience gained through previous actions, but in the current context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Its primary objective is to contribute to the deepening of EU-Mexico relations in matters of culture and cultural heritage.
* Registration open exclusively for participants from the 27 Member States of the European Union and Mexico.
