07-02 SESSION 02: Heritage as a Development Strategy

The coupling between Heritage preservation and development processes is critical to build up societies that are sustainable, resilient and inclusive. Development processes therefore should be reconfigured in a way to not only safeguard Heritage, but fully tap into its contribution to sustainable development. 
The session “Heritage as a Development Strategy” goes beyond “cultural heritage” and tourism-led development and explores culture-led, place-based and people-centered approaches to Heritage management conducive to sustainable development.
The session features three presentations that reveal a broader scope of Heritage and sustainability and examine their linkages. It successively looks into:
– Harnessing cultural heritage for social and economic development through community empowerment and engagement, preservation, transmission and capitalization of traditional knowledge, crafts and construction techniques;
– The preservation of “olives forest landscape” as a tool for territorial development: a case study in Calabria; and 
– The nexus between heritage and sustainability, focusing on cultural heritage and tourism as strategies for endogenous development.
