 Inspirations worth spreading
PLUGGY has been inspired by and built around the Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Faro Convention, 2005). It embraces the Convention, expressing its notions and principles in most of its developments.

About Faro Convention
The Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage for Society (Faro Convention) is about us, living together across 47 member states! It was born out of the desire of the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe to create a framework that would show what kind of economic, social and cultural possibilities and resources cultural heritage offers.

Why Faro Convention
Faro Convention suggests a vision and a new way of looking at heritage by setting the ground to re-frame relations between all involved stakeholders, highlighting the essential role of inhabitants and heritage communities.
In this regard, it argues that when heritage is considered as a source and resource, everyone’s opinion, interests and aspirations count.
