We are proud to announce that we will be holding a 2022 ICOMOS Canada Symposium.
The Symposium will serve as an opportunity for ICOMOS Canada to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention. The purpose of the Symposium is built upon three pillars: contextualising international leadership in Canada, fostering discussion on emerging trends in the cultural heritage sector, and strengthening the network of cultural heritage professionals. These pillars will guide the content and theme of the Symposium.
ICOMOS Canada will invite speakers, thought-leaders, community change-makers and World Heritage experts to discuss how World Heritage has shaped our communities and the role it plays in developing a sense of social cohesion. The Conference will explore themes related to sustainable development, climate change, decolonization, and cultural diversity.
