IT IS IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT A F.W.T. OPERATION IS ALWAYS AN OCCASION FOR STUDY AND FOR MULTIDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH THAT HELPS TO RAISE THE CULTURAL OFFERS
YOU HAVE ALREADY STARTED A PRESERVATION OPERATION AND WISH TO JOIN THE "FRIEND OF THE WORLD TREASURES" LIST
The followings are the criteria your activity must meet:
1) To conform with F.W.T. objectives you must have the surrounding community deeply involved in preserving and promoting significant elements of local cultural heritage showing its diversity and richness.
2) To be economically sustainable: it should favour the local cultural development and at the same time meet the social and economical needs of the community.
3) To lead to exchanges:
from a local point of view, the "Treasure" is the landmark that pulls together the community through the preservation and conservation of their cultural heritage.
from an international point of view, each of the "Treasures" is a reference in its field. Together with other "Treasures" it will participate in the recognition of the universality of cultural values and richness of multiple cultural identities.
Being listed means getting a qualification and therefore the "Treasure " must constantly comply with the above criteria for fear of dismissal.
