Call for applications: Sustainable Heritage Management Executive Course, June–August 2023
UNESCO in collaboration with the Hong Kong Institute of Architectural Conservationists (HKICON), the Think City Institute, and the Asian Academy of Heritage Management, launches the Sustainable Heritage Management Executive Course.
Heritage professions in the Asia-Pacific region are increasingly under pressure to adapt to new challenges, such as those presented by climate change, economic slowdown, the global pandemic, and others – all of which require the constant rethinking of established approaches towards heritage management.
UNESCO and regional partners’ ‘Sustainable Heritage Management Executive Course’ offers heritage professionals an opportunity to upskill and reskill their competences to meet new demands in cultural heritage management. Through this course participants will be exposed to fundamental principles, innovative tools, good practices and on-the-ground case studies for sustainable cultural heritage management.
The Course will cover essential content from the recent inaugural Sustainable Heritage Management Foundation Course (2020–2021) in a condensed time frame. It will focus on the five Core Competences defined under the UNESCO Competence Framework for Cultural Heritage Management (2021):
Heritage policies, principles, processes and ethics
Upholding laws and regulations
Community, rights and knowledge
Heritage education and interpretation
This Course requires participants to be present on site in Hong Kong SAR, China, for a 3-day programme from 15 through 17 June 2023, which will be followed up by a series of online interactive tutorial classes, a capstone project, and a competence-based assessment process. A travel subsidy will be provided for successful participants coming from outside Hong Kong SAR, China.
The learning materials have been developed with the support from Ng Teng Fong Charitable Foundation (NTFCF).
Application deadline: 26 May 2023
