In addition to the lectures and discussions, a workshop led by Borut Rovšnik was held on the evaluation of museum collections. Participants took a very active approach and came up with ideas on how to reduce energy consumption and replace it with renewable energy sources.

Dr. Andreja Rihter, Director of the Forum of Slavic Cultures, said at the event:  “The Green Heritage Manifesto represents a turning point in the efforts of museums around the world to become more active in protecting the environment and promoting sustainable development. We are delighted to host this important international gathering in Koper and to contribute to the dissemination of these key ideas for our current and future work.”
