UK National Co-ordinator
Throughout Europe, each country participating in the 2018 European Year of Cultural Heritage will have a national co-ordinator who is responsible for encouraging participation and publicising events during the year. North of England Civic Trust has agreed to perform that role in the United Kingdom with Graham Bell as the official representative.
NECT is a charitable organisation working across the UK and active in European networks such as Europa Nostra and Voices of Culture. For over fifty years we have been energetic advocates of civil society including through Heritage Open Days (part of European Heritage days) and were instrumental in setting up Civic Voice. NECT’s work includes rescuing buildings at risk and bringing them back into use, creating employment opportunities that benefit the local economy. We provide independent advice to those who need it – often brokering solutions to sensitive development issues and working with civic societies and other groups championing public involvement in the processes that shape the environment.
