Conference themes and topics


Heritage can be a base for identity, integrity and « spirit of place », value, individuality, emotion and can play an important role in ensuring social cohesion and welfare of men.


Depending on the context (community, culture) it has multiple values. As actions it can include conservation, restoration, revitalization, redevelopment etc., but before any measures are undertaken, heritage should be the subject of reflection and discussion. One of the first questions to be asked should be what is worth saving, what can be learned from or forgotten?


Understanding heritage and its contribution to social and urban development needs to be done from a multidisciplinary perspective. As an integral factor of sustainable development heritage promotes a high quality of life through cultural values. It also reinforces unity and diversity, bringing citizens together, while enhancing the uniqueness of communities and individuals.
