Two years with the UNESCO Chair – how have things turned out?
The second progress report of the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University for the period September 2018–August 2019 is now completed. In the report, the progress made by the entire team over its second year of activities is presented.
Over its first two years, the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University has been engaging in an extensive programme of national and international collaboration in research and training. We presented our work and agenda on many occasions in Sweden and around the world. We established contacts to various programmes and activities in UNESCO, to the Swedish Delegation to UNESCO, the Swedish UNESCO Commission, and began collaboration with other UNESCO Chairs in Sweden and internationally.
Over the past year we co-organized two large events in Stockholm and in Amsterdam. In this report, we document the progress made by the entire team over our second year of activities.
Over the coming years, the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures will build on the experiences and develop training courses on heritage futures for the global heritage sector.
