On 1 October 2020, the Sapienza University of Rome is organising a webinar on the contribution of Cultural Heritage to sustainable development in the Middle East and North Africa region.

The University of Bucharest and the Université libre de Bruxelles, two CIVIS member universities, will join the event to discuss together strategies towards the preservation and promotion of Cultural Heritage in the MENA area in a situation of political crisis likely to be made worse by the present COVID19 emergency.

Main themes to be addressed are:

a) Cultural Heritage Preservation: a European Model
b) Cultural Heritage and Scientific Diplomacy
c) Local Tourism as local engine to sustainable development.

Cultural heritage — both tangible and intangible — and creativity are resources that need to be protected and carefully managed. They can serve both as drivers for achieving the SDGs as well as enablers, when culture-forward solutions can ensure the success of interventions to achieve the SDGs.

Participants from the CIVIS alliance:
Sapienza University of Rome: Carlo Giovanni Cereti, Paolo Carafa and Maria Sabrina Sarto
University of Bucharest: Ioana Stanculescu 
Université Libre de Bruxelles: Sebastien Clerbois and Julien Pieret 
The webinar is opened to all. People interested in attending the event must register through the online form.

Deadline is 28 September 2020

NB: the link of the virtual room will be send to your email address.
