A Master Course in "World Heritage at Work" has been created by the Universita degli Studi di Torino (Italy) and the Politecnico di Torino in collaboration with the UNESCO World Heritage Centre. It is intended to contribute to improved management of World Heritage sites through preparing managers and site practitioners to be cultural entrepreneurs, creative agents of their local systems and promoters not only of conservation but also of income generation and job creation.

The programme is intended for professionals involved in the management of a World Heritage site. The course will take place from 15 June 2008 to 14 June 2009, and is divided into three cycles.

Candidates who are interested should fill in an application form (available on the website below) and submit it by e-mail or fax no later than 10 June 2008.
