What is heritage: an Alien concept? (2015)
Cultural heritage is widely recognised across Europe as a vehicle of cultural identity. The protection of our common heritage and the promotion of cultural diversity are also very important instruments for bringing different communities closer and enhancing dialogue between different cultures. How much people know about cultural heritage depends both on what is done to promote it and also on the capacity of Europeans to become familiar with and appreciate their own culture and those of the other communities. This is why one of the main objectives of the “European Union/Council of Europe Joint Action - Support to the Promotion of Cultural Diversity in Kosovo (PCDK)” is to increase the awareness of the population with regard to the importance of cultural heritage as a common good, independent from any ethnic or religious considerations. This comic strip booklet “What is Heritage; an Alien Concept?” illustrates the importance of cultural heritage in a humorous way, exemplifi ed by extraterrestrial characters pondering on the peculiarities of terrestrial heritage. The booklet implies that it is this terrestrial heritage which is our common patrimony and for the protection of which we need to join forces and work together.
