    Everyone is invited to attend a workshop entitled “Connecting Practice: Linking Culture and Nature Through World Heritage” at the World Conservation Congress (WCC) 2016 in Honolulu. The summary of the event is as follows:

    The World Heritage Convention is the leading international instrument for the protection of natural and cultural heritage. However, for much of its history, the two “sides” have operated in parallel but largely separate worlds. Reflecting an evolution in thinking, this session explores how innovative “practice” can create new methods of recognition and management for the intertwined character of the natural, cultural and social value of most landscapes and affiliated biocultural practices.

    If you are interested in participating, please take note of the following:

    the workshop was organized by ICOMOS, the US National Park Service, WCEL, and WCPA. the workshop centered on challenges and solutions in managing sites hosting both natural and cultural heritage, with featured speakers including:

    Vinod Mathur (Wildlife Institute, India)
    Cynthia Orlando (Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, USA)
    Athline Clark (Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument, USA)
    Poky Tane Haoa Hey (Rapa Nui, Chile)
    Oscar Mthimkhulu Maloti (Drakensberg Park, South Africa)

    following the presentation, the audience was divided into 5 “break-out” groups, with each group joined by one of the speakers and one of the event organizers. audience members in each group were invited to provide comments and share experiences in relation to the presentations and the workshop theme. each group generated a summary of findings. the workshop ended with a brief plenary that compiled the various group findings into a single document, with the expectation that the findings would be included in an outcome statement for future work.
