INTBAU MONTENEGRO is a non-governmental organization, founded by Mirjana Lubarda and based in Cetinje. The Montenegrin Chapter aims to assist local, state and international communities and all other stakeholders whose activities are aimed at preserving traditions and identity, preserving and enhancing cultural heritage and transmitting its authentic form to future generations. The main goal of the association is the promotion and dissemination of knowledge and experience about the value and importance of cultural heritage, the implementation of activities which are aimed at the promotion and development of architecture, urban planning, cultural heritage and the entire society.

Bearing in mind the potentials of Montenegrin cultural heritage, recognition of the need to preserve it in a proper manner is of great importance. Intensive historical events have left us a number of traces of past life – witnesses of social and cultural shifts in the area of Montenegro. Thus through preservation and promotion, raising awareness of local and state community will be the main goal, which will further allow sustainable development.
