Call for Papers: "Forward Together: A Culture-Nature Journey, Towards More Effective Conservation in a Changing World"
US/ICOMOS Symposium
13-14 November 2018
San Francisco, California (United States)

The 2018 US/ICOMOS Symposium Program Committee invites abstracts for papers to be shared within a Culture-Nature Journey that explores the growing understanding that cultural and natural heritage are inextricably linked in many landscapes and waterscapes. Effective and long lasting conservation of these places depends on better integration of these ‘entangled dimensions’. This symposium builds on, and advances, the Nature-Culture Journey at the IUCN World Conservation Congress in 2016 and the Culture-Nature Journey at the ICOMOS General Assembly in 2017. Sessions at the US/ICOMOS Symposium will further explore the interconnections of cultural and natural heritage and ways to shape long-term sustainable conservation.

Deadline for abstracts: 15 May 2018
