  • Who owns the Monuments?

    Posted on July 29, 2016

    International conference on the occasion of the 20th anniversary of National Trust of Slovakia on 9 November 2016 in Bratislava

    This conference offers a forum for presenting and sharing the experiences and best practices of the National Trust movement and similar NGO, state or commercial initiatives on the topic of saving, preserving, restoring, managing, using and promoting heritage sites of cultural, historical, natural or any other significance on the local, national and international level.


    Delegates will address the question “Who owns the monuments?” and explore how we can all contribute to saving, protecting and meaningfully using our common heritage either by choosing to take action or simply adopting the right attitude.

    “There are two things in an edifice: its use and its beauty. Its use belongs to its owner, its beauty to everyone.  Thus, the owner exceeds his rights in destroying it.” – Victor Hugo
