Each KC offers interested parties the option to join that KC by subscribing to a stream of heritage content from the KC. This subscription option is open to all those interested in the KC’s subject matter, including US/ICOMOS members, policy makers, practitioners and other interested parties. This free subscription service is managed by US/ICOMOS and is meant to advance understanding of issues related to cultural heritage. Joining a KC offers subscribers an opportunity to be notified periodically when new content is posted to the Knowledge Communities to which they have subscribed.
KC postings concentrate on the work of major international, inter-governmental, and multilateral actors involved in advancing the understanding and protection of heritage across the Globe including UNESCO, ICCROM, ICOMOS Scientific Committees (IFLA, etc.) and Europa Nostra. We also cover universities, ICOMOS National Committee, and national, state and local preservation organizations and organizations as well as the work of organizations from allied fields like the Sustainable Development Solutions Network, ICOM, Agenda21Culture, World Bank and IUCN.
