ICOMOS Hellenic National Committee and ICAHM are jointly organizing an international conference on the future and new challenges facing the Protection Management of Archaeological Heritage that will take place in New Acropolis Museum 23-25 May 2012.

The scope of the conference is to present and use past experience with a view to contribute as a think tank to new ways of managing the protection and preservation of our archaeological heritage in times of economic crisis. The challenges are now greater than ever, as the cultural society needs to regroup its forces, reinforce its role, create new synergies and undertake fresh initiatives in order to maintain standards and offer sustainable solutions. The conference will function as a platform for discussion and exchange of ideas by all professionals involved in protection management in these difficult times.

The opening events as well as the educational films are open for the public and free from
participation fee.
