The US/ ICOMOS have a call for papers for their upcoming symposium on ‘Forward Together: A Culture-Nature Journey, Towards More Effective Conservation in a Changing World’. The event takes place from 13-14 November 2018 in San Francisco, California.
This Symposium is convened by US/ICOMOS in partnership with the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS), International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), UNESCO World Heritage Centre, National Trust for Historic Preservation, Presidio Trust, Golden Gate National Parks Conservancy, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, and U.S. National Park Service.
The symposium would be of particular interest to CSVPA members as the 2018 US/ICOMOS Symposium Program Committee invites abstracts for papers to be shared within a Culture-Nature Journey that explores the growing understanding that cultural and natural heritage are inextricably linked in many landscapes and waterscapes. Effective and long lasting conservation of these places depends on better integration of these ‘entangled dimensions’. This symposium builds on, and advances, the Nature-Culture Journey at the IUCN World Conservation Congress (2016) and the Culture-Nature Journey at the ICOMOS Triennial General Assembly . Sessions at the US/ICOMOS Symposium will further explore the interconnections of cultural and natural heritage and ways to shape long-term sustainable conservation. Also, the IUCN is planning an event for their 70th anniversary on Monday, 12 November – one day in advance of the US/ ICOMOS symposium.
Note that the deadline for abstracts is 15 May 2018. For questions do email the firstname.lastname@example.org (not CSVPA).
