2022 EFFORTS – FORTE CULTURA – UKRAINE TWINNING PROGRAMME
NO TO WAR ! STOP the attack on people and heritage.
EFFORTS and its member FORTE CULTURA adopted at the FORTE CULTURA 2022 April Terezin Conference a Declaration against the war of aggression against Ukraine and its people. Our EU Member States and cities are doing alot. However, at the request of its member sites, EFFORTS, together with FORTE CULTURA are helping its members to connect at their level with Ukrainian fortified heritage cities and sites.
Do you as an EFFORTS / FORTE CULTURA site want to join this Cooperation, partner with a Ukrainian site? The cooperation is focused around a Twinning Programme: go through the presentation and first results hereby (we presented the Programme on 21 April online), learn in the second presentation on fortified heritage in Ukraine, and if you have questions or want us to help you find a partner site: send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
