Summary in French:
"L’année 2013 verra le 400e anniversaire de l’aqueduc Médicis construit sur ordre de Marie de Médicis afin d’amener à Paris les eaux de sources captées à Rungis et aux alentours. Sur le trajet de l’aqueduc, il reste aujourd’hui vingt-quatre regards en pierres de taille qui disposent tous d’un bassin de décantation, d’ouvertures d’aération (prenant parfois l’aspect d’une lanterne) et d’escaliers rejoignant la surface. L’eau de l’aqueduc arrivait à Paris dans le regard XXVII, ou « maison du Fontainier ». La bâtisse est d’abord utilisée pour loger les fontainiers et répartir l’eau entre le roi, le peuple et l’entrepreneur. Elle permet ensuite de stocker l’eau qui, à partir de là, alimente douze fontaines publiques rive gauche et deux fontaines rive droite. Compte tenu de l’intérêt historique de ce patrimoine et de son caractère régional, la Région Île-de-France a décidé de participer à ce projet de publication et de l’accueillir dans la collection « Parcours du patrimoine".

How can one work together accessibility and protection of heritage while dealing with statutory and architectural requirements? How can one break down the barriers to accessibility in historic monuments and cultural sites in Europe? How can one accept that sites or monuments inscribed on the World Heritage List, that are supposed to be universal and bring cultures together, can be still inaccessible to some categories of people? How can one facilitate an access to everything for all without threatening the heritage value of buildings and their environment? How are European countries working towards these goals that may seem contradictory at first sight?
These are the main questions that this conference will seek to answer.
Amiens cathedral, France. The entrance, the inside area and the reception desk of the Tourist Office have been designed to welcome physically disabled people.In order for all of us to enjoy the city, it has become essential to find a balance between the ethical issue of equal opportunity, the acceptance of social diversity, the demand for accessibility and the duty of remembrance, of preserving and promoting heritage sites and landscapes. It is about finding a balance between the supporters of a restrictive protection of monuments and sites, and those in favour of a free access for all types of visitors, at the risk of altering this built heritage or participating in the artificialization of natural areas.
Upgrading the built frame is a necessary condition for disabled people to gain access to culture, knowledge and leisure. Adapting the offer to other kinds of audience is also essential.
The task is as much about creating tools of a cultural mediation that are adapted to all kinds of disabilities, as it is about raising awareness and training heritage stakeholders.
Feedback from European case studies will shed light on these topics to assert the values that we share regarding cultural identities and citizenship in order to design a more inclusive society.

From its adoption in October 2003 until the submission of the first periodic reports in 2011 and 2012, the Convention for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage has achieved many milestones at both the international and national levels.The tenth anniversary offers a wide range of actors the opportunity to make an initial assessment and to explore the key challenges, constraints and possibilities related to its implementation.All stakeholders involved in the safeguarding of intangible cultural heritage are invited to share on this site the events and activities they organize to celebrate this anniversary. All activities can then be immediately consulted on a map, a calendar and a list in their original language. Visit dedicated website

Mr. GUO Zhan, the vice president of ICOMOS, will share his rich experiences on World Heritage nomination and management. The application of the World Heritage Convention to China has resulted in many positive developments upon heritage resource management. In such a vast territory – with extreme differences of education, economic and social development, cultural diversity and natural conditions – the impacts have been diverse and complex. Numerous interesting issues have arisen, not least the perception of divergence between the western and Chinese cultural values.

ICOMOS-UK is pleased to invite you to our Summer Meeting and AGM at the Snowdonia National Park Field Studies Centre, Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, Gwynedd, north-west Wales, organised in collaboration with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW).
This meeting will focus on the spectacular sites and forthcoming nomination of the Slate Industry of Northern Wales for World Heritage status. We will visit some of the vast quarries, mines and surviving settlements of what were the world’s largest slate quarries and discuss aspects of the management and conservation of such complex industrial sites and landscapes. We will include a trip on the historic Ffestiniog Railway which runs past Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, itself a former slate quarry owner’s mansion in magnificent mountainous surroundings.
On the third day delegates will be joined by members of the Pan-European Atlanterra Inter-reg Partnership from France, Portugal and Spain, who will give presentations on slate industries in other parts of Europe, to put the Welsh industry in international context, and lead a discussion of ‘valorisation’ (gaining heritage value from the industrial heritage) which is a particular interest of this international group.
