SESSION 12: The value of culture during Pandemics

Our world heritage site is in crisis. Their existence is threatened by natural disasters. In addition, the recent pandemic has shown the weakness of World Heritage sites and how people are essential to the preservation and maintenance of World Heritage sites. Our heritage consists of cultural, natural, or mixed landmarks. Cultural heritage is so exceptional that its importance transcends borders and has shared importance for all of us. Buildings, monuments, artifacts, and structures, as well as the values that exceed art and scholarship, are universal values that belong to all humanity, regardless of where they are located. We intend to conduct this discussion under the title of “The value of culture during Pandemics” to discuss the protection and preservation of our natural and cultural heritage, while giving them life and new meaning, at the same time. In addition, we want to address how cultural values have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic.
