World Heritage and Tourism: Tackling the Challenges of the COVID-19 crisis: 14 December 2020

The 11th Seminar of the UNESCO CHAIR “CULTURE, TOURISM, DEVELOPMENT” Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne University in collaboration with UNESCO World Heritage Centre will be held on Monday, December 14th, 2020 13:30 – 16:00 (CET) on ZOOM

The seminar titled “World Heritage and Tourism: Tackling the Challenges of the COVID-19 crisis” will bring together World Heritage site managers to discuss how they are coping with the uncertainty and strategies striving to remain open and measures they are undertaking to build back stronger and more resilient as the crisis abates.

The seminar will look at emerging trends to see how these can be adapted for long term sustainability. With people confined to their homes for long periods, there has been a surge in the demand for virtual and digital heritage experiences, an increased desire for nature-based experiences and a renewed interest in rediscovering local heritage. This has created opportunities for heritage sites to reconnect with local communities and attract new audiences virtually from around the world.
