Carleton University visiting ICCROMOn 21 February, professor Lyette Fortin and her architecture and conservation students from Carleton University, Canada, visited us at ICCROM headquarters. Professor Fortin spent several months at ICCROM in 1986, participating in one of our foundational courses, the Architectural Conservation Course.

The group heard presentations by Jennifer Copithorne, Partnership and Communication Unit Manager, and Valérie Magar, our Programmes Unit Manager. They learned about and discussed sustainable conservation practices and ICCROM’s emphasis on using traditional knowledge for a better future. 

We at ICCROM recognize the importance of shaping the next generation of conservation professionals, which is why we invite all students and young professionals to apply for our internship programme.

Don’t forget: Internship applications are open until 9 April!
