Deadline: 6 December 2017
Call for Participants | Workshop on World Heritage, Sustainable Development and Civil Society (Belgium)
The UNESCO policy on the 'Integration of a Sustainable Development Perspective into the Processes of the World Heritage Convention' was adopted in November 2015. This policy aims to ensure that the conservation and management of World Heritage properties are aligned with broader sustainable development objectives (environmental sustainability, inclusive social development, inclusive economic development, as well as the fostering of peace and security). A number of meetings have been held and reports have been published on how to operationalize this policy. Yet, workshops involving civil society are still missing, which is problematic as civil society stands at the heart of this policy.
This workshop aims to identify concrete approaches and models to implement the UNESCO policy on sustainable development and World Heritage, through a workshop involving civil society. This workshop also aims to find innovative ways of involving civil society to help implement the policy.
Thematic sessions will be included in the workshop: Inclusive social development, Inclusive economic development, Environmental sustainability and Fostering peace and security.
This workshop is open to activists, members of civil society, academics and professionals with expertise in sustainable development or cultural and natural heritage, or people with expertise and interests in social, economic or environmental issues.
Limited funding (including for travels) is available on a case by case basis particularly for participants from developing countries.
