The Colloquy was organised by the Council of Europe, the "Centro Nacional de Cultura" and the Institute for the Management of the Architectural and Archaeological Heritage (IGESPAR) with the support of the Gulbenkian Foundation. It brought together Ministers of Culture, parliamentarians, academics and high-level experts to discuss the contribution of cultural heritage to the progress of society as highlighted in the Faro Convention.
