The Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings (SPAB), London, UNITED KINGDOM
2012 EU PRIZE FOR CULTURAL HERITAGE / EUROPA NOSTRA AWARD
Category 3 - Dedicated Service
"What the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings has accomplished in its 125 years of existence is a major example of how to protect heritage for future generations. The wide range of activities, ranging from training young people to acting as respected champions of heritage in danger, has made a strong impression on the Jury, which feels honoured to be able to grant due recognition to this highly respected Society. Not to have given cognizance to its long term supreme achievement would have represented a major miss."
