THE 24th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON INDUSTRIAL HERITAGE
28 September / 1 October
INDUSTRIAL SITES AND PUBLIC WORKS FROM LOCAL TO UNIVERSAL
The 24th International Conference on Industrial Heritage, organised by INCUNA with the collaboration of various public and private institutions, and running under the title of «Industrial Sites and Public Works. From local to universal», will be held this year 2022 in the Ciudad Laboral de la Cultura in Gijón (Asturias) – Spain.
The event is to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Paris Convention of 1972, when UNESCO adopted its important resolution with respect to the protection of cultural and natural heritage. The Conference is designed to produce reflection on the state of industrial heritage and related civil or public works, both in terms of their nomination and the management issues of sites and places in the world related to industrial memory, as well as the situation of the many other elements, ensembles, landscapes and tangible and intangible industrial heritage of local or regional importance not included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. Hence the motto «from local to universal».
