Engaging Conservation Conference – Programme highlights

Following a great response to the call for papers, the outline programme for the Engaging Conservation conference is taking impressive shape.  There will be two main strands: Communities & Place and Capacity Building, explored through sub-themes in parallel sessions.

With keynote addresses from Professor Jukka Jokilehto and from ICCROM, the programme includes contributions from conservation practitioners and projects in Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, and the USA, as well as from around the UK. This will be a fantastic opportunity for sharing international experience and developing community practice with papers on outreach and public engagement, community involvement and ownership, evaluation and impact, volunteering and skills development, case studies in tangible and intangible heritage and new theoretical perspectives.

The provisional programme will be published later in April – early booking for the conference is recommended as numbers are limited.  Special discounted rates are available for members of ICOMOS-UK, York Conservation Alumni Association and York Consortium for Conservation and Craftsmanship.  Book here or download an application form to register.
