International Scientific Committee on Twentieth Century Heritage (ISC20C) Initiative Announcement: Heritage Practice Survey

photo newsletter 89 ISC20CThe ISC20C is preparing to launch a survey in the coming weeks aimed at all National Committees of ICOMOS to gain a deeper understanding of the current state of conservation globally about caring for Twentieth-century heritage.

This survey follows up on the MAP20 study conducted from 2001-2004, which identified key issues in Twentieth-century heritage preservation. Now, two decades later, ISC20C seeks to assess how the field has evolved and identify the most pressing challenges that are now evident. The survey will gauge the awareness and effectiveness of ISC20C guideline documents, explore the availability of resources and literature in different countries, and pinpoint common trends, challenges, and opportunities faced in caring for Twentieth-century heritage internationally.

The results will shape the ISC20C work plan ahead and be shared on its website to inform the work and research of others. National Committee Presidents are the primary recipients of the survey, with support made available from national or regional members of ISC20C to assist in preparing the responses. The timely contribution of National Committees to this survey is greatly appreciated and will significantly contribute to advancing the understanding of Twentieth-century heritage conservation worldwide.
