ABSTRACT

The purpose of this session/working group is to discuss on the role of international cooperation in the preservation of paleo-anthropological heritage, especially in the case of UNESCO and in the framework of the World Heritage Convention. The main objective is to bring the practice of research closer to that of conservation and thus to bring academia closer to multilateral practice in the field of the cultural and natural heritage of human evolution, guaranteeing the preservation of the early traces of the cultural diversity of humankind. The invited professors will present a series of case studies that illustrate how the World Heritage Pleistocene sites preserve the earliest evidence of our human history in its diversity as the most fundamental intertwined and interlinked cultural/biological heritage of our species. Our interest is to underline the multilateral role of the WHC in this endeavour and to explore all the possibilities within this founding text to better preserve Pleistocene knowledge at sites. This session intends to establish a fruitful dialogue across professional, scientific and heritage conservation disciplines.
