UNESCO launches the inaugural Sustainable Heritage Management Foundation Course for heritage practitioners in the Asia-Pacific region to upskill and reskill core competences
Pressures on cities such as the current pandemic, climate change, economic slowdown, and conflicts mean that approaches to heritage management need to be reinvented. Beyond conservation-related objectives, heritage managers must also mobilize heritage for local development, as defined by the Sustainable Development Goals.
Conducted by UNESCO Bangkok in cooperation with the Think City Institute and the Asian Academy for Heritage Management, this course will upskill and reskill professionals working on heritage management, with a focus on South-East Asia, to meet these new demands. The Course is supported by the Netherlands Funds-in-Trust.
The Course offers a combination of self-paced online learning and interactive webinars, followed by a capstone project and final event.
DURATION: 6 Months (November 2020 – April 2021)
APPLICATION DEADLINE: 26 October 2020
COURSE FEE: 500 USD*
*UNESCO Bangkok is offering a limited number of scholarships with priority given to World Heritage site managers from South-East Asia.
