SESSION 02: Heritage categories and a crosscutting approach among conventions

https://youtu.be/JghsjRVzsyY

The drafting and adoption of UNESCO’s heritage conventions are the result of perceived threats to heritage resources. This reactive process, focused on individual heritage elements, has resulted in a siloed approach to the application of the various operational guidelines laid out in these conventions. Selected elements of heritage are managed separately and by teams of experts centered on their own areas of competence. This has resulted in management strategies that prioritize some heritage facets above others, thereby excluding components that may resonate deeply with stakeholders. At worst, this approach creates conflict and feelings of disenfranchisement.

This session seeks to identify and debate concepts and mechanisms for applying a cross-convention approach to the identification of World Heritage and an inclusive approach to the management of World Heritage Sites. The goal of the session is to test the feasibility of endorsing a multi-convention strategy for World Heritage.
