ICOMOS is a non-governmental international organisation dedicated to the conservation of the world's monuments and sites.
Monday (2 Dec) saw the opening in Madrid, Spain of the 25th meeting of the Conference of Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP25). The 2-week long summit represents the year’s most concentrated period of climate policy work, making it a critical event for anyone concerned about climate change. ICOMOS will have a significant engagement at this year’s COP, strengthened by the release in July of its new report: “The Future of Our Pasts: Engaging Cultural Heritage in Climate Action.”
ICOMOS International was represented by Board member Nils Ahlberg during this meeting, whose list of participants included eminent guests such as Ms Irena Kolishtrkoska Nasteva, Speaker of the National Committee Assembly, the Minister of Culture Dr. Hisni Ismaili, the President of the National Commission for UNESCO, Mr. Edmond Ademi and ICOMOS Members from neighbouring countries (Albania, Bulgaria, Greece, Serbia and Kosovo).
Professionnal experience and international network
The IEP program enables graduate students and emerging professionals to strengthen their skills and acquire new professionnal experience while hosts organizations (in the US and abroad) will make international connections and support the training of new professionnals.
