The 7th seminar of the UNESCO Chair and UNITWIN-UNESCO network on “Culture, Tourism and Development” organized by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne / IREST – EIREST, Association of French World Heritage Properties and ICOMOS France will be held on 14 December 2016.
The Seminar will focus on the development of UNESCO World Heritage sites in Europe and their capacity to play a leading role in the sustainable and equitable development of the continent, including:
- How to build, from the European world heritage sites, a new European scale of significance, making it possible to identify transversal issues?
- Bearing this in mind, how to connect with other heritage or tourist mechanisms on a European scale (European cultural routes, European capitals of culture, as well as new tourist practices such as roaming)?
- How to develop hospitality for non-Europeans?
- Is there a new European approach to safeguarding and enhancing the heritage?
