Among the various themes of the 2020 edition, the Santagata Foundation took care of organizing the panels focused on issues such as the Value of UNESCO World Heritage for Sustainable Development and Risks for Cultural Heritage, with the definition of the two webinars:
- – WORLD HERITAGE FOR SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT
- World Heritage status is increasingly being recognized as an effective factor for generating development opportunities for communities and territories, as defined by the United Nations 2030 Agenda. With the Indicators Culture | 2030 document, UNESCO, at the end of 2019, prepared a new tool to measure the ability of culture to affect these processes. In this context, the panel, organized by Fondazione Santagata intends to present and confront some of the most significant experiences from world heritage sites.
- – CULTURAL HERITAGE AND RISKS: addressing the emerging challenges
- The protection of cultural heritage from emergencies requires specialized skills, tools and operating methods. All aspects becoming more strategic than ever given the present scenarios and the emerging challenges posed by the current radical changes and uncertainties. The panel, organized by Fondazione Santagata, in the frame of the International Master in Cultural Property Protection in Crisis Response, aims at exploring some of these questions.
