Roundtable Dialogue on bridging the gap between conservation and development through Heritage Interpretation
In observance of the publication of WHIPIC’s inaugural periodical “Interpreting World Heritage” in coming December, WHIPIC held a 1-hour Roundtable Dialogue on World Heritage Interpretation and Presentation specifically focusing on relations among environment, conservation, and development. There have been ongoing discussions about finding the balance between conservation and development through sustainable development, community participation, and various forms of partnerships and multi-national collaboration. It is a challenging, however, meaningful journey to embrace all stakeholders and to contribute to the harmonious value of World Heritage sites.
On such grounds, WHIPIC invited experts in the fields of environment, conservation and development to hear about the role of heritage in each area and how we can achieve mutual cooperation through inclusive heritage interpretation and presentation.
