Meanwhile, the Youth Peace Award that distinguishes the best artistic and literary works of German youth on the theme of Peace and has the patronage of the Minister of Culture of Saxony, Brunhild Kurth, will be delivered.
“Places of Peace Route- The European Peace Heritage Route”, developed by ENPP since 2012, is one of the candidate routes for Cultural Route of the Council of Europe and will be represented in this Forum by two members of the Board of the Association.
Included this year for the first time in the list of candidate routes (read more at: http://www.culture-routes.net/candidates/current-candidates), “Places of Peace Route” is a symbolic route that identifies and promotes the different places in Europe where peace treaties were signed and currently has 8 adherent places from 7 countries. This route has great potential for expansion and development once they are identified more than 200 places in Europe where peace treaties were signed and the theme developed by the Route – Peace – is one of the most entrenched European values.
