  • 3 June 2019

    Exchange of good practices and strategies for administration and promotion of sites on the list of world cultural heritage, were on the agenda for a study visit by member of the Polish parliament and head of the Parliamentary Team for UNESCO World Heritage, Tomasz Głogowski, to Denmark.

    During a visit to Denmark on 27-29 May 2019, member of the Polish parliament (Sejm, Lower Chamber) and head of the Parliamentary Team for UNESCO World Heritage in the Sejm of the Republic of Poland, Tomasz Głogowski, met with the Secretary General of the Danish Commission for UNESCO, Ms. Anna Enemark from the Ministry of Education. The consultations touched upon i.a. the newly adopted Danish UNESCO strategy for 2019-2022, which includes protection of cultural and natural heritage, but also promotion of networks of creative cities, schools and universities under UNESCO auspices, as well as implementation of sustainable development goals in accordance with the 2030 Agenda adopted by the United Nations.


    MP T. Głogowski also met with the administrators of two Danish famous sites on the UNESCO world heritage list – Roskilde cathedral and the Kronborg castle, often referred to as “Hamlet’s castle” in Elsinore in Northern Zealand. The bishop of the Danish Lutheran diocese of Roskilde, rev. Peter Fischer-Møller, turned the attention to the challenges related to maintaining and administering a site, which is a sanctuary for the local community, but at the same time a national museum – a necropolis of Danish monarchs, attracting up to 200,000 tourists every year. The parties also exchanged views on similarities and differences in the financing and administration of UNESCO world heritage sites in the two countries (models of financial support from the state, municipalities or public-private partnerships).


    The last stop on MP T. Głogowski’s program was a visit to the Danish parliament (Folketing).
