This side event on Re-shaping Education for and through Cultural Heritage: Setting global networks and disseminating good practices for urban sustainable development, will federate WHITRAP Shanghai and CAUP Tongji University, ICOMOS-CIF and the Ibero-American Network of UNESCO Chairs, with a common aim to contribute to the new UNESCO Framework for Culture and Arts Education.


It will focus on education for the protection and conservation of heritage in particular urban rural heritage and its influence in sustainable development. It will present what constitute good practice, including the integration of traditional knowledge and methods with new technologies, particularly AI. Case studies concerning urban heritage conservation in Asia and urban sustainable development in South America will be presented and discussed with an international audience.


The panel discussion format will reveal the unprecedented educational opportunities to go beyond the existing structures, disciplines, resources and skills traditionally used in the domain of heritage. There will be a focused discussion to produce specific suggestions for a meaningful global collaboration to promote culture and arts education as a tool enabling society to develop its own creative and transformative capacities.


Overall, the event will reflect on traditional and emerging educational models concerning cultural heritage that take also in account the challenges of climate change. It will stress the need to build up global collaborative networks to face shared challenges and exchange experiences involving teaching, learning, research and action.


The panel discussion is organized as a follow up activity of several recent related activities:
•The contribution of ICOMOS-CIF to the UNESCO Multi stakeholder Dialogue in May 2023 and the outcomes of the ICOMOS-CIF 2023 Symposium in Athens:” Design and Delivery of Education and Training for the Conservation of Built Heritage”;
•The setting up of the International Network for Urban Heritage Conservation in Higher Education Institutions (UHC-HEI) initiated by WHITRAP Shanghai and the College of Urban Planning (CAUP) Tongji University, Shanghai, PR China in September 2023;[3][4][5]
•The online side event ‘Cultural Heritage as a development tool: Cultural heritage and Education’, organized by Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso in January 2024.[6][7]

Poster of WCCAE 2024[13]

 

The overarching background of the program is UNESCO’s endeavour in the past two decades to promote culture as a key pillar of sustainable development. It refers to the principles and frameworks developed by UNESCO in the two world conferences related to Culture Arts Education in Lisbon 2006[9] and Seoul 2010[10]. Also, to the Cultural Policies and Sustainable Development – MONDIACULT 2022 Document[11] adopted in Mexico and the upcoming revised global Framework on Culture and Arts Education of the UNESCO World Conference on Culture and Arts Education, Abu Dhabi 13-15 February 2024.[12] It comprehends Arts fields and Culture in a very broad way and reflect on their role as levers for fostering sustainable development, where Arts Education, as stated in the background document to the 2010 Lisbon “World Conference on Arts Education”, can be understood as a possible means to “enhance learning in other subjects. Whereas the possible relevance of teaching Art is “for the body of knowledge, skills and values to be derived from it”. These policy documents, roadmaps and frameworks include heritage conservation in the discussion, referring to several standard setting UNESCO documents, Convention and Recommendation, including the corpus of cultural Conventions and the 2011 Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape amongst others as well as the New Urban Agenda adopted at Habitat III Quito, 2016.
