This Globinar from the related initiative Our World Heritage is scheduled for Saturday, January 9, 2021.
“The digital revolution is changing the ways in which people know, understand, use, and visit heritage sites. How is the World Heritage Convention addressing this historical transformation?
Within the theme of Transformational Impacts of Information Technology we aim to establish a robust network of organizations and professionals, and together put forth policy recommendations to the World Heritage Committee. Striving to not only inspire discourse but also action, we are exploring how we can use technology to monitor our World Heritage Sites and to present multiple narratives through various tools of interpretation.”
