About the project

Roșia Montană is getting ready to go out into the world. Meaning it's preparing for being listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. This is more than a formal deed, we are talking about a new destiny. A new beginning. A beginning meaning full, assumed acknowledgement of an outstanding past and a dynamic present. But this also means proceedings, actions, documents, all of which must undergo procedures and are subject to clear, firm and exigent criteria.
This website will show the undergoing process through which Roșia Montană is getting ever more close to its acknowledgement as a place of universal value.
