Tai Kwun Conversations: UNESCO Series – Innovations in Urban Heritage

Presented by Tai Kwun in collaboration with UNESCO Asia and Pacific Regional Bureau for Education (UNESCO Bangkok), this series of conversations explore innovative strategies for integrating urban heritage into the wider goals of sustainable development. With a regional focus on Asia and the Pacific, it aims to inspire local actions and creative solutions as the catalysts for implementing the Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape and the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.

The COVID-19 pandemic has had a significant impact on World Heritage properties and the surrounding communities. It has amplified pre-existing structural issues and raised new problems related to heritage management in the broader context of a city. This series provides an opportunity for creating new value propositions beyond immediate pandemic response for the achievement of long-term sustainability in terms of economic, social and environmental dimensions.
