This House Believes that UNESCO is Holding Back Our Cities
Tuesday, June 18, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 8:00 PM (BST)
City of Westminster, United Kingdom
Join Building Futures for a debate about the conflict between preservation of heritage and the development of our cities; are we striking the right balance? Are we compromising our image on the world stage? Or is the preservation of heritage becoming a real obstacle to creating great cities fit for the future? How much influence should an organisation like UNESCO have over the way we shape our cities?
