The international conference “Earth, Wind, Water, Fire – Environmental Challenges to Urban World Heritage” that took place in the German World Heritage town Regensburg from 16th-18th September 2008 was a great success. Experts form more than fifteen European countries came to the medieval city in Southern Germany to attend the Northwest-European Regional Conference of the “Organization of World Heritage Cities” (OWHC). After three days of inspiring presentations and discussions, the conference participants jointly adopted the “Regensburg Recommendation”. The paper formulates basic strategies on the protection of historic towns from environmental risks and natural hazards.
The Conference Proceedings as well as the “Regensburg Recommendation” are now available for download on Regensburg website.
