The World Heritage Office of the Historic Heritage Protection Directorate of the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports of the Government of Spain is organizing the XII National Meeting of World Heritage Managers, hosted by the Luis Seoane Foundation from 6 to 8 of November 2018 in the city of Coruña.
The meeting, celebrated annually since 2007, is a space for analysis, debate and networking among World Heritage site managers in Spain, which promotes the exchange of ideas and best practices for safeguarding World Heritage.
The theme of this year’s meeting is “Communication and heritage. Transmitting the Outstanding Universal Value.” Communication, especially with civil society, is one of the “Five C’s”, or Strategic Objectives of the World Heritage Convention. Therefore, the objective of this meeting is to strengthen knowledge and skills in this particular topic, as well as to contribute to this debate through the presentation of case studies.
Through presentations and a hands-on workshop, a number of experts will share their experience on developing communication tools and strategies used for the presentation and interpretation of World Heritage properties in Spain. For more information, a full programme of the meeting is available.
