Development and Conservation – why the conflict?

Speaker: Michael Turner UNESCO Chair in Urban Design and Conservation Studies at Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem
Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City has been declared by UNESCO to have features of outstanding universal value, which puts Liverpool in the Premier League of world cities. With the status under threat, our 2017 seminar series asks if we have sufficiently valued what being a UNESCO World Heritage Site confers.
Entitled “Liverpool UNESCO World Heritage Site – A Status worth fighting for?” this free seminar series will bring UNESCO heritage officials to venues within Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City – currently inscribed on UNESCO’s List of World Heritage in Danger.
Registration is essential.
Engage Liverpool CIC is a volunteer ran, not-for-profit organisation and our seminar series relies on the sponsorship and kind contributions of members to make it happen. We are asking all attendees to pay a refundable £2.50 to secure their place at the seminar, this can then be refunded upon registration at the event.
