International conference “Flood Protection for Historic Sites”, June 13 – 14, 2014 in Dresden, Germany

ICOMOS Documentation Centre - Tue, 02/25/2014 - 18:43

University in Dresden, under the patronage of the Saxon Minister of the Interior and in association with the German National Committee of ICOMOS.Increasingly frequent disasters involving high water have led to efforts in many parts of the world to enhance flood protection. Although the extensive structural measures that are often undertaken also protect historic sites, at times these very measures can impair a site’s special values. Not enough attention has been given in the past to such adverse effects. This interdisciplinary colloquium will discuss relevant experiences from various contexts and professional perspectives. Further information is to be found in the programand on the following website:

Date: 5:30 pm Thursday 31 May 2012
Venue: Room 612 Institute of Archaeology University College London
Followed by wine reception
in 609 Staff Common Room
All Welcome!

Mr. GUO Zhan, the vice president of ICOMOS, will share his rich experiences on World Heritage nomination and management. The application of the World Heritage Convention to China has resulted in many positive developments upon heritage resource management. In such a vast territory – with extreme differences of education, economic and social development, cultural diversity and natural conditions – the impacts have been diverse and complex. Numerous interesting issues have arisen, not least the perception of divergence between the western and Chinese cultural values.

ICOMOS-UK is pleased to invite you to our Summer Meeting and AGM at the Snowdonia National Park Field Studies Centre, Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, Gwynedd, north-west Wales, organised in collaboration with the Royal Commission on the Ancient and Historical Monuments of Wales (RCAHMW).

This meeting will focus on the spectacular sites and forthcoming nomination of the Slate Industry of Northern Wales for World Heritage status. We will visit some of the vast quarries, mines and surviving settlements of what were the world’s largest slate quarries and discuss aspects of the management and conservation of such complex industrial sites and landscapes. We will include a trip on the historic Ffestiniog Railway which runs past Plas Tan-y-Bwlch, itself a former slate quarry owner’s mansion in magnificent mountainous surroundings.

On the third day delegates will be joined by members of the Pan-European Atlanterra Inter-reg Partnership from France, Portugal and Spain, who will give presentations on slate industries in other parts of Europe, to put the Welsh industry in international context, and lead a discussion of ‘valorisation’ (gaining heritage value from the industrial heritage) which is a particular interest of this international group.
