As a follow up to the European Year of Cultural Heritage 2018, ICOMOS Germany is organizing two further conferences in 2019, which will continue to draw on the main issues of SHARING HERITAGE. In addition, a publication referring to results of the EYCH 2018 conferences ("Iron Curtain and Green Belt", "A Future for Our Recent Past") is coming up.
A first conference takes place 20 to 23 February in Berlin: Under the headline "Underground Architecture Revisited" aspects of monument protection in relation to the architecture of European metro stations are discussed. Second, a conference on "The legacy of the modern Olympic Games“ is in the making.
Among the target groups of both events are experts from the preservation of monuments, conservation, restoration and archeology as well as members of other professions, students and interested citizens. All events are free and mostly public. Involvement of citizenship and the interested public is particularly encouraged through targeted cooperation with civil society organizations and movements.
