Welcome to the Sustainable Heritage Management Foundation Course!
“COVID-19 has been a major wake up call for our profession, and many other professions, that our normal ways of doing things are no longer enough. So what is the ‘New Normal’ in the work of cultural heritage management? This is not just about responding to the pandemic, but also dealing with other challenges like climate change, economic collapse and other issues.”
Shigeru Aoyagi, Director of UNESCO Bangkok
This Course aims to upskill and reskill heritage practitioners to meet new demands. It offers the skills and knowledge to demonstrate holistic, interdisciplinary, and multidimensional approach towards heritage management.
The Modules of this Course refer to the five Core Competences defined under UNESCO’s new Competence Framework for Cultural Heritage Management. Each module is led by a leading university in the Asia-Pacific region in this field:
- University of Hong Kong on “Sustainable development”
- National University of Singapore on “Heritage policies, principles, processes and ethics”
- Southeast University on “Applying laws and regulations”
- Deakin University on “Community, rights and knowledge”
- Ahmedabad University on “Heritage education and interpretation”
During the Course, you will be exposed to fundamental principles, innovative tools, good practices and on-the-ground case studies. Upon finishing this course, we expect you to be equipped with the skills and knowledge to respond more effectively to real-world demands in sustainable heritage management.
