Living heritage is an approach to heritage conservation established at an international level by ICCROM following the launch of the Living Heritage Sites program. Living heritage can be characterized as cultural heritage, tangible and intangible, which is still in use for its original purpose with a strong community connection. With this definition in mind, religious heritage, when in its original and traditional use, can often be considered as part of living heritage.
The 2021 ICOMOS PRERICO seminar will discuss the challenges that rapid societal development, globalization, climate change, political conflicts, present in maintaining continuity in living religious heritage. The seminar will address a series of questions surrounding preservation, sustainable management, and community involvement in the maintenance of living religious heritage.
