CLIC participation at Open Heritage First Dialogue

Workshop organised by ICLEI Europe in the framework of the Horizon 2020 project Open Heritage. Open Heritage aims at creating sustainable models of heritage asset management. The project puts the idea of inclusive governance of cultural heritage sites together with development of heritage communities at its center. This means empowering the community in the processes of adaptive reuse. The First Dialogue aimed at exploring current policies on adaptive reuse of cultural heritage.

Allison Wildman, Senior Officer for Governance and Social Innovation at ICLEI Europe, presented the most relevant learnings from the CLIC Report on circular governance models for adaptive reuse of cultural heritage that she co-authored. The circular governance model is “a values-based, principled approach for valorising, protecting, and sustaining cultural heritage assets as a process to encourage high-quality adaptive reuse cultural heritage projects as a common good of society.
