BfN Schriften 149 - World Natural Heritage and Cultural Landscapes in Europe The Potential of Europe’s World Natural Heritage
The 28th meeting of the World Heritage Committee (Suzhou/China, 2004) concluded that all parties to the World Heritage Convention should compile Tentative Lists until 2007. These lists should be more consistent with the obligations of the convention and its Operational Guidelines
This three years seminar series aims at supporting the adequate representation of European Natural Heritage on the World Heritage List. Today, only few European Natural sites are included in the World Heritage List, however, the potential of unique and extraordinary natural areas is much larger. Due to their natural and cultural history, many of these sites are situated in the borderland between countries as well as within different countries.
