The UNESCO world heritage site "Ancient and Primeval Beech Forests of the Carpathians and Other Regions of Europe" organises a workshop to prepare it's multi-annual strategy.

The tool used is "enhacing our heritage toolkit 2.0"

The Enhancing Our Heritage Toolkit 2.0 (EoH 2.0) provides a globally tested self-assessment methodology to support World Heritage managers and actors to evaluate management effectiveness in a World Heritage property or other heritage place. A management effectiveness assessment is the evaluation of how well a World Heritage property is being managed: primarily on the extent to which the heritage values of the property are being maintained and management objectives are being achieved. The Toolkit supports site managers in identifying ways to improve conservation practices, management processes and resource allocation, particularly if used before reviewing or updating management plans.

The 12 tools making up the toolkit offer simple and user-friendly methodologies that can be used collectively or separately to assess all key components of a management system. The results offer a base to improve conservation practices, management processes and resource allocation. Starting from the assessment of how well values and attributes are understood, the EoH 2.0 toolkit can be adapted and modified to analyze existing governance arrangements and management processes and monitor results that are (or are not) delivered. To facilitate the application on the ground, each tool is accompanied by a thorough description of how it can be used and a set of reflection questions.
