Conclusion of the second webinar: Cultural Heritage and People in the Post-Trauma Process: Building Resilience through Integrated Reconstruction and Recovery of Heritage

15/03/2021

On 9 March 2021, the Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) held a second webinar on the topics of reconstruction and post-trauma recovery entitled Cultural Heritage and People in the Post-Trauma Process: Building Resilience through Integrated Reconstruction and Recovery of Heritage and welcomed a virtual audience from across the globe. The webinar was organised in the framework of the Conference: Integrated Reconstruction and Post-Trauma Impact on Communities and Socio-Economic Aspects of Recovery that ARC-WH intends to organise later this year due to the global pandemic. The conference's programme includes various prominent experts and researchers who have already contributed to a publication, which will be presented at the conference.

The second webinar built upon the outcomes of the first webinar: Cultural heritage and people - building resilience in the superimposed trauma, held on 21 December 2020. It welcomed a diverse panel of experts who addressed and discussed the importance of combining empirical and theoretical knowledge, which is ever-evolving through the need to develop synergies of global and local responses to the persisting occurrences of heritage destruction and social trauma. The webinar's central focus was on the exchange of ideas and knowledge transmission between communities, heritage organisations and experts with a common aim of building resilience through heritage recovery. Case studies were presented and discussed with the audience, including the lessons learned from heritage organisations' experience working in the field of reconstruction.
