Call for participants: do you work with heritage places?
ICCROM is seeking 20 participants to take part in an Asian regional course on Promoting People-Centred Approaches to Conservation of Nature and Culture. This online course is open to:
- Heritage practitioners from the cultural and natural heritage sectors and other individuals working at a specific heritage place.
- Individuals involved in the conservation and management of cultural and natural heritage. This includes, for example, those working in heritage at a regional or national level, policy-makers and other representatives of institutions, non-governmental organizations, charities, local associations, community groups, researchers, etc.
Participants should be able to demonstrate their involvement in ongoing activities with diverse communities and entities within the context of management activities at a heritage place with natural and cultural values. Importance will be placed on selecting some participants who deal with World Heritage properties and/or who are active in capacity building initiatives to improve approaches to heritage conservation and management.
Knowledge acquisition and exchange will be promoted through the course format, which is framed as a forum for participants from both the cultural and natural heritage sectors to share their experiences, learn from each other, and from resource persons working with communities and heritage. The course will take place entirely online and will consist of interactive sessions sharing experiences, presentations, approaches and tools, as well as practical exercises based on case studies.
The working language of the course will be English.
