EU Prize for Cultural Heritage / Europa Nostra Award 2013
Irish Walled Towns Network Educational Programme, Kilkenny, Ireland
The IWTN was founded in order to unite and co-ordinate local authorities involved in the management, conservation and enhancement of 27 historic walled towns in Ireland. Formed in 2005, the IWTN’s role had been to give grants for town wall conservation plans, the implementation of those plans, and the running of Walled Towns Day festivals. Due to the recession in 2010 it had become apparent that a more imaginative approach was needed. In essence, conservation for the sake of conservation was no longer viable and a programme of education, outreach and capacity building was required.
