A message from E-FAITH – the European Federation of Associations of Industrial and Technical Heritage

2015 is approaching very fast, and the European campaign to promote the industrial heritage in the course of next year is already coming at cruising speed, kindling with enthusiasm a lot of associations and volunteers in many countries.
Please see the first briefing note about this campaign, which we would like you to forward – if possible – to other associations and to local authorities and press in your region, thus spreading the message.

Please also do note the meetings which already have been announced for the Autumn:
– a second workshop on factory chimneys, to be held in Roubaix (France), on August 29th and 30th – registration is open now
– the annual E-FAITH industrial heritage weekend is going to take place in Lyon (France), October 24-26th
At the end of the Summer we will send out a second briefing with updates.

Don’t hesitate to contact us if you do have any question or if you would like to receive additional information !
