Current issues in heritage and conservation: challenges and opportunities

Sponsored by the Centre for Environment, Heritage and Policy at the University of Stirling, this free half-day seminar is targeted at Stirling MSc Environment, Heritage and Policy students and staff, BA Heritage and Tourism, and PhD students, but unfilled places are open to wider audiences / a reserve list. Booking a place by 27 January is essential. Queries about booking should be addressed to Lauren Stringer.

The full programme is available here. Leading practitioners will explore current issues in heritage and conservation, supported by concrete examples. Each 20-minute presentation will be followed by 10 minutes of discussion. The aim is to encapsulate:

- different types of heritage (cultural and natural landscapes, buildings, monuments, intangible, collections)
- different aspects of heritage work (knowledge and understanding, understanding value, managing change, protection and conservation, engagement and enjoyment)
- different types of organisations (central and local government; heritage bodies; umbrella organisations, etc.)
- strategic and coal-face activities.

Attendees will have the opportunity to mingle in an informal environment over a break and wine reception.
