Internationale conferenties; heritage and cultural tourisme

Het is maart en dus zijn we druk met de planning van het jaar. Belangrijk voor in de agenda van Erfgoed 2.0 zijn ook de internationale conferenties/congressen. Een eerste onderzoekje geeft aan dat 2014 aardig wat in petto heeft op het gebied van Erfgoed, Erfgoed en media of media of andere relevante onderwerpen. De komende weken zullen we er hier enkele van uitlichten. Hieronder alvast de eerste twee:

Acropolis“Cultural Tourisme in a digital Era” vindt plaats op 30, 31 mei en 1 juni in Athene. “The 1st International Conference on Cultural and Digital tourism will provide a timely and interactive international platform for academics and industry practitioners from cultural, heritage, communication and innovational tourism backgrounds and interests to meet, discuss and debate cultural,heritage and other tourism issues that will affect the future direction of hospitality and tourism research and practice in a digital and innovational era.  The Conference is supported by the International Association of Cultural and Digital Tourism.” Meer informatie en online registratie vind je op de conference website.

De tweede conferentie in in juli, van  22 tot 25, en daarvoor moet je afreizen naar Guimaraes te Portugal. Het betreft Heritage 2014, de 4de internationale conferentie over ‘heritage and sustainable development’. Deze conferentie “aims at establishing a state of the art event regarding the relationships between forms and kinds of heritage and the framework of sustainable development concepts.
Once again the four dimensions of sustainable development (environment, economics, society and culture) are the pillars of this event, defining a singular approach on how to deal with the specific subject of heritage sustainability. Furthermore, beyond the traditional aspects of heritage preservation and safeguarding, the relevance and significance of the sustainable development concept is to be discussed and scrutinised by some of the most eminent worldwide experts.
Heritage is no longer considered as a mere memory or a cultural reference, or even a place or an object. As the previous editions of “Heritage” (2008, 2010 and 2012) have proven, heritage is moving towards broader and wider scenarios, where it becomes often the driven forces for commerce, business, leisure and politics.” Zie de conferentie website voor meer info.

Interessant is ook dat deze laatste dit jaar een ‘special chapter’ wijdt aan Heritage en cultural tourisme.
