Industrial heritage for post-industrial times

We take a look at industrial heritage and why we should love old factory buildings instead of tear them down. What is being done to promote industrial heritage, and what has to be done to preserve industrial heritage while keeping in line with the EU’s green deal? What can the Central and Eastern European region learn from Western European industrial preservation activities? These are just some of the key issues surrounding industrial heritage today.

In this episode we invite you to join us for our conversation on the promotion of industrial heritage and how best practices are being shared across the continent. We speak to Hildebrand de Boer, Managing Director Stichting Industriecultuur Nederland (Dutch Foundation for Industrial Culture), as well as Miles Oglethorpe, President of the International Committee on the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage (TICCIH).

Hosted by Dr Katarzyna Jagodzińska, Head of the Europa Nostra Heritage Hub in Krakow, and John Beauchamp.
