ICOMOS Argentina and the ICOMOS IFLA International Scientific Committee on Cultural Landscapes (ISC CL) hosted a very successful Symposium at Mendoza, Argentina from December 9 to 15. A wealth of presentations by ISC CL members and many colleagues from the region offered insights and future directions for the identification, protection and management of cultural landscapes of the urban, peri-urban and rural zones.
The symposium was especially successful in bringing together a robust group of individuals interested in the cultural landscpaes of the Latin American and Caribbean region that will form a nucleus for revitalized regional activities.
With a focus on the unique Mendoza region, the members of the ISC CL worked together to provide the "Mendoza Declaration" recognizing the importance of the region and offering guidance for future heritage recognition and preservation. That declaration is provided here in three languages.
