6.- Iberoamerican cultural heritage network / REDIPAC
The IBEROAMERICAN CULTURAL HERITAGE NETWORK (REDIPAC), is an initiative by the Spanish Association of Cultural Heritage Managers with sponsorship from the Spanish Cultural Ministry, whose objective is to include academic, institutional, public and private professional bodies dedicated to the promotion, management, conservation, diffusion, creation and enhancement of the Cultural Heritage throughout the iberoamerican area.
REDIPAC interprets Cultural Heritage as an economic resource and a common heritage for all humanity. This tendency to consider Cultural Heritage as a supranational responsibility becomes even more evident in the field of iberoamerican countries, which have common historical and linguistic ties.
The purpose of this Network is to become a meeting point for the debate and study of the problem caused by Cultural Heritage in the countries involved, as well as for the exchange of experiences and solutions, to facilitate access and the channeling of international cooperation and to serve as a link between the European Union and the iberoamerican countries.
