ICOMOS Webinar Series | SDGWG Webinar 5 : Policy + Partnerships : Coming Together to Mobilize Heritage for Sustainable Development

ENG SDGWG webinar5 posterThe Sustainable Development goals Working Group would like to announce their next SDG Webinar 5 on Wednesday 17th March, 2021, 14:00 -15:30 Paris Time. The Webinar 5 will speak about Policy + Partnerships : Coming Together to Mobilize Heritage for Sustainable Development (SDG 1-17). Links to register will be found at the end of this article.


ICOMOS understands that multi-stakeholder partnerships are important to enable the sharing of knowledge, technologies, expertise and financial resources to protect and conserve heritage and promote sustainable development. ICOMOS partners with various institutions and stakeholders to safeguard and support the conservation of heritage places around the world. During the last decade, ICOMOS has also developed a body of work captured in various doctrinal texts, charters, resolutions, policies and other publications to advocate for heritage as a driver and enabler of sustainability.

The fifth webinar of ICOMOS SDGWG will present its recently completed document entitled,“Heritage and the Sustainable Development Goals: Policy Guidance for Heritage and Development Actors”. The document illustrates many ways which suggest how heritage can be integrated into larger strategies of building a sustainable future. By providing guidance to ICOMOS members, heritage professionals, and development actors, the document aims to demonstrate the potential of harnessing heritage to assist in achieving sustainable development. Several case studies will be shared to provide further translation of the policy to real examples.

Two types of partnerships will also be showcased in the webinar: the first will focus on urban partnerships that situate heritage in sustainable cities emphasising on sensitive urban regeneration, amidst the threat of climate change. The second type of partnership will look into the intertwined nature and culture linkages that reflect a holistic approach to the heritage practice. Both will highlight the need for inclusive governance and effective integrated management so that sustainable development is achieved by fostering the engagement of local communities including urban communities, indigenous peoples and migrants, while allowing cultural practices to thrive.
