President of Georgia Signed the “Berlin Call to Action” to Enhance Cultural Heritage

President Zourabichvili joined other leaders in the Cultural Heritage for the Future of Europe union and signed the “Berlin Call to Action” document.

The Secretary-General of EUROPA NOSTRA, Ms. Sneška Quaedvlieg-Mihailović presented the document and made the case for its signature to the President of Georgia.

The document is a pledge to enhance the protection of cultural heritage as a political and individual priority. Those that sign the pledge take the responsibility to protect cultural heritage and set the ground for a more peaceful, successful, and inclusive Europe.

The document reads, “Confronted with so many challenges, and even threats, to core European values, this debate cannot be based exclusively on political, economic or security consideration… We must put our shared cultural heritage where it belongs: at the very center of Europe’s policies and priorities.”
