ICOMOS is a non-governmental international organisation dedicated to the conservation of the world's monuments and sites.
Heritage and Democracy was the designated theme for the Scientific Symposium organised in the largest Democracy of the world - India in the city of New Delhi from 11th to 15th December 2017 during the course of ICOMOS 19th General Assembly.
The fundamental idea of this Symposium was inspired by a recent global shift in heritage discourse towards a sincere people-centric engagement. The Scientific Symposium proceedings explore the possibilities for cultural heritage in a domain of multiple stakeholders, recognising the challenges of cultural diversity and resulting contestations amidst local and/or global communities.
On September 20, in advance of a big UN climate summit, school children across the globe will be striking for climate action. ICOMOS is proud to support the #ClimateStrike and urges members of the arts, culture and heritage communities to join in too as adult allies.
From 1-10 October 2020, cultural heritage practitioners from around the world will converge in Sydney, Australia, for the 20th triennial General Assembly of ICOMOS.
The GA2020 Scientific Symposium “Shared Cultures – Shared Heritage – Shared Responsibility” will comprise six themes, of which one is: ”INDIGENOUS HERITAGE: sharing, exchange, and control”. The Co-chairs for this theme are Dr Chris Wilson (Ngarrindjeri/Kaurna, Nunga; ICOMOS Australia) and Dr Diane Menzies (Ngāti Kahungunu, Māori; ICOMOS New Zealand).
