On Wednesday, May 10, the launch meeting of the national network dedicated to the Faro Convention was held at the Council of Europe offices in Paris. The ACCR, active member, attended.
Sensitive to the issues of cultural rights and heritage as a resource for social cohesion and inclusiveness, the ACCR is involved in this network in order to demonstrate the interest of the "Faro" approach and to encourage more organizations to get involved.
This meeting was an opportunity to collectively reflect on the beginning of a structuring for the network by answering fundamental questions in order to establish a common base: how does one join the Faro France network? What coordination for the network? What are the concrete implications, in terms of contribution, activity and solidarity?
To launch the Faro network, ten or so proposals were made by the stakeholders, such as the setting up of certification training courses in universities, an online portal dedicated to the French network that would list the current members and their fields of action in order to facilitate potential contact, a FAQ to answer the most frequent questions of people who are new to the Convention, or the publication of articles on ways of applying and interpreting the Convention, based on the model proposed by People Places Stories, which publishes a publication every two years.
