Engaging Communities in the Conservation of Nature and Culture – PCA15
Rome and the Bay of Naples, 5-16 October 2015
ICCROM is pleased to announce the commencement of its first course on Promoting People-Centred Approaches: Engaging Communities in the Conservation of Nature and Culture (PCA15).
This short course is aimed at conservation practitioners, providing them with the necessary knowledge and tools to work more effectively with communities through existing management systems. It will also be used as an opportunity to create a forum for participants to share their experiences in both the cultural and natural heritage sectors, learning from each other and other heritage practitioners who are actively involved with communities. This intensive short course will consists of lectures, interactive sessions on sharing experiences and practical exercises based on a real-life case study in the Bay of Naples.
We are pleased to welcome Ms Sorcha Sara McCormack from Ireland who will volunteer at ICCROM until late August.
Sara is a recent graduate of the University College Dublin where she studied and obtained a Masters in Classic. Her work as Masters student and as a volunteer has been centred on the conservation and preservation of ancient artefacts. While at ICCROM, she will be assisting in editing and uploading documents related to the upcoming course on Engaging Communities in the Conservation of Nature and Culture, which will be held in October 2015.
