Social and economic integration of cultural heritage

Objectives

The workshop will summarise state-of-the-art in the research of basic approaches and policy in social and economic integration of cultural heritage. The following special objectives are emphasised:

  • Changes of approach to cultural heritage, its definition, criteria and role in the changing technology and society conditions. Theoretical (philosophy) background of national approach to conservation policy and the existing deficiencies.
  • Monitoring of national cultural heritage preservation policies and forming recommendations for a creation of individual policies on national levels.
  • Identification of future social and economic benefits from cultural heritage on the local, regional, national and European level as a contribution to the quality of life.
  • Identification of future threats to cultural heritage and their social and economic impact and new preventive measures for preservation of cultural heritage in future.

The workshop will deal with problems aiming at:

  • Awareness raising through various forms of education and participation of public in preservation and enhancement of cultural heritage.
  • Contribution of cultural heritage to the quality of life. It should address acceptance and impact of modernisation, conversion or extension of cultural heritage buildings considering modern standards of safety and comfort and using modern materials and technologies.
  • Contribution of cultural heritage to the job creation and prevention of social exclusion.
  • Contribution of cultural heritage to the understanding and toleration among social groups and nations.
  • Identification of economic effects from cultural heritage preservation, rehabilitation and reuse and social and economic analyses.

Position of localities, sites, structures and objects forming cultural heritage (cultural - historical entities - CHE) in the local (regional, national, European) context stands for the central aspect of the respective subject matter, providing background for the other issues to be studied, the most relevant of which are deemed as follows:

  • Approaches to the assessment of the CHEs' cultural, social and economic value.
  • Cultural heritage entities as a part of environmental patterns and the ways how to mitigate local environmental quality.
  • Impacts of the presence of CHEs on the value and price of real estate and identification factors in the community.
  • Localisation of economic activities, considered in the CHEs' concerns perspective.

The information on the on-going and completed projects in the studied fields is to start the workshop. Exchange of views as for the existing "economic environment", legal base and prevailing management practice regarding the appropriate handling of CHE has to specify the issues to be addressed in the further parts of workshop.
