UNESCO-sites in a regionally sustainable development perspective

The purpose of the conference is to give UNESCO managers an insight into best practices, which can provide inspiration and good ideas about how the management of UNESCO sites can contribute to sustainable development in the surrounding local communities: Financial contribution to the local economy, capacity building, innovative businesses, services etc. We will address administrators in a broad sense, including site managers, professional networks, local and national managers and other stakeholders who have an impact or influence on how the site and the surrounding community coexist in the most appropriate and beneficial way.
