ICOMOS Workshop and Conferences  “Coastal Communities, Heritage and Climate Change”

22.-28.08.2022 Estonia – Narva-Tallinn-Lahemaa-Saaremaa

ICOMOS Nordic-Baltic Network in cooperation with ICOMOS Rights-Based Approaches Working Group, International Scientific Committee on Water and Heritage, Estonian Academy of Arts, Environmental Board of Estonia and other partners calls members of ICOMOS and heritage communities to take part in the ICOMOS workshop on coastal heritage, communities and climate in August in Estonia. The working language is English, translations can be provided in case of necessity. The event is supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers

The workshop consists of open conferences, site visits and separate thematic closed workshops in Tallinn and Lahemaa NP. There are two site visits- to the War, and Iron Curtain landscapes up to Sillamäe and the Viking age and medieval coasts of Saaremaa island. The site visits are optional. The heritage workshop is preceded by special workshops on the threats to  Ukrainian heritage and future collaboration of Nordic-Baltic ICOMOS NC-s.

Within the workshops, there will be two open conferences for the general public – „Coastal World Heritage and Heritage Communities“ on 24.08 in Tallinn and “Facing the Sea – Connections of Heritage and Traditions” on 26.08 in Viinistu. Regsitration for the participants for the conferences in Tallinn and Viinistu is open here https://forms.gle/GgAkMN7NzCTUTxby6 .

The third Nordic-Baltic workshop on community rights and heritage is dedicated to the interrelations between communities, heritage and climate change on the example of coastal communities. Themes – traditional communities, indigenous peoples, UNESCO sites, conflicting histories, climate resilience, coastal landscape changes and challenges, heritage impact assessments, heritage in conflicts. The workshop aims to contribute to the cooperation of regional experts in working with contemporary challenges of heritage protection – community inclusion and the implementation of sustainable development goals. The workshop targets expert and heritage community levels.

With the topic of coastal heritage and climate change, we hope to get a deeper understanding of the variety of issues heritage is tackling in the face of rapid climate change via very concrete coastal communities’ perspectives, their knowledge, practices and livelihoods. This workshop concentrates on holistic approaches to coastal heritage – tangible and intangible, movable and immovable heritage, landscapes and spaces, land and water.

ICOMOS Eesti annab oma panuse Ukraina pärandisektori toimimiseks

Seoses intensiivse sõjategevusega Ukrainas ning pärandobjektide sihiliku ründamisega on rünnaku alla sattunud ka Ukrainas elavad pärandispetsialistid.

Et nad saaksid jätkata oma tööd Ukrainas ja hoida ning kaitsta Ukraina kultuuripärandit, on hädavajalik tagada spetsialistide tööks ja eluks vajalikud vahendid. Nende tegevuste võimaldamiseks on Ukraina muuseumitöötajad loonud mittetulundusühingu HERI (Heritage Emergency Response Initiative), mille üheks eesmärgiks on pärandiga seotud töö jätkamine ka keerulises olukorras.

HERI tegevust ja selle kaudu Ukraina pärandi säilimist on võimalik toetada ICOMOS Eesti kaudu (teostame makseid kord nädalas) või otse.

Mittetulundusühing Eesti ICOMOS pangakonto on EE254204278618753001 (Coop pank), palun märkige seletusse kindlasti märksõna “Ukraina HERI”

On ka võimalus teha rahvusvaheline ülekanne otse Ukrainale, kes on ka meie maksete saaja (Tustan NGO). Võtke meiega ühendust! Aitame koos! Слава Україні!
