EFFORTS survey for fortified sites across Europe - preparation for Congress 2020 “THE SOCIO-ECONOMIC IMPACT OF FORTIFIED HERITAGE: CRISIS RESILIANCE, PRESENT AND FUTURE”
Dear fortified heritage managers!

This survey is the first step towards a future quantitative study on the importance and the socio-economic value of each of the European countries’ fortification heritage sector. Based on the respective EFFORTS Venice Declaration (2018) and Statement in Antwerp (2019), the results of this study will be presented at the livestreamed 2020 ANNUAL EFFORTS CONGRESS. The results will then serve as the basis for the above-mentioned future European study, to be commandeered after 2020.

EFFORTS is a European network organisation established in 2017 to share knowledge and practical expertise on military heritage, such as walled towns, forts and defence lines. Today EFFORTS unites more than 50 European fortified sites and networks and is growing. Since 2018 EFFORTS has been a European professional representation of fortified sites. It is member of the Europa Nostra managed European Heritage Alliance 3.3. Our main mission is the structuring of European cooperation and keeping military fortified heritage on the European policy agenda. EFFORTS believes that European cooperation is the key to achieving its goals.

! IMPORTANT Filling in this survey is a prerequisite, a condition, for the free participation to the EFFORTS congress 2020.
