The second edition of the EU-LAC Dialogue Sessions 'Cooperation and Policies in the realm of Cultural Heritage, Cultural Routes and their relevance for the Bi-regional Partnership between the European Union, Latin America and the Caribbean' was organised as a webinar by the EU-LAC Foundation in cooperation with the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Culture of Peru on 17 and 18 February, 2022. The recordings of day 1 and day 2 are available online.
The objective of the webinar was, firstly, to provide a space for dialogue, the articulation, and the exchange of perspectives between officials, managers and experts on policies and programmes on the promotion of heritage and cultural routes in the EU and LAC. Likewise, the event sought to assess the challenges and future projections for the management of cultural heritage and cultural routes in both regions, in a context marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, natural disasters, climate change and digitalisation. Therefore, the aim was to share existing policies, programmes, instruments and management models directed at increasing the management and protection capacity of cultural heritage and to generate proposals for bi-regional cooperation initiatives in this field.
