Webinar: CULTURAL HERITAGE AND PEOPLE - BUILDING RESILIENCE IN THE SUPERIMPOSED TRAUMA
The Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) will be organizing an online webinar: Cultural heritage and people - building resilience in the superimposed trauma on 21 December 2020 at 11:00 – 15:00 (CET), within the framework of the Conference: Integrated Reconstruction and Post-Trauma Impact on Communities and Socio-Economic Aspects of Recovery.
The conference was initially planned to be held in April 2020 at ARC-WH’s premises in Manama, Bahrain, however, due to the unforeseen circumstances brought on by COVID-19, it has been postponed until 2021, or at least until the conditions of the pandemic allow for such a meeting to take place in real space. The program of the conference includes a wide range of prominent experts and researchers, who have already submitted their contributions to the book of proceedings.
In light of this postponement, ARC-WH has resolved to organize several webinars within the framework of the conference that addresses issues of heritage reconstruction and recovery marked by several challenges, the majority of which are linked to the complexities of social and economic environments caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and the implementation of health protection measures.
The first webinar: Cultural heritage and people - building resilience in the superimposed trauma, will contribute to the search for efficient, sound and sustainable solutions. Some of the most vulnerable heritage sites have been affected by new disasters in 2020. One - and sometimes more than one - devastating events superimposing over the other, and affecting both people and heritage, the global economic recession, limited physical communications, and extreme health precautions are appealing for the urgent response. Restructuring knowledge, capacities and resources have to be considered, as well as redesigning reconstruction and recovery concepts and priorities.
The webinar Cultural heritage and people - building resilience in the superimposed trauma will be organized into two panels.
