Protecting Cultural Heritage: A drive wheel for sustainable development.

The 2-hour webinar will focus on the protection of cultural heritage as an enabler of social and economic development, with particular reference to the Mediterranean Basin. Contributions will shed light on how actions on cultural heritage, including the protection and safeguarding of both tangible and intangible heritage, bring about an increase of employability and employment-related outcomes, the development of professional skills and capacities, the building of partnerships among civil society organisations, universities, private bodies and public stakeholders, the cohesion of communities and the inclusiveness of society. A set of field experiences, selected by the British Council, AICS and other European partners, will offer evidence of the key relationship between the protection of cultural heritage and the improvement of socio-economic conditions, highlighting the most effective and dynamic factors.
