The Launch of our International Policy Report, "Home, Family and Climate Change," took place at the United Nations Headquarters in New York on Wednesday, 15th May, during the formal delegations' observance of the 30th Anniversary of the International Year of the Family.

The Policy Report concluded 18 months of collaboration with United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UN-DESA) and Home Renaissance Foundation.

This report, which spans 140 pages, 11 research papers, 13 policy recommendations, and 17 international experts, marks a transformative step change in our perception and understanding of how family and home can play a key role in altering the course of the collective effort to combat climate change by reinstituting the family as the central social, cultural, and economic unit within society.

Digital documentation is widely recognized as a tool for risk management of cultural heritage exposed to disasters caused by natural hazards such as earthquakes, floods, fires, environmental fluctuations, and war damage. In recent years, there has also been an increase in the number of projects that utilize cultural heritage for touristic and regional development through the successful use of advanced technologies such as virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR).

Join our next ILS webinar to learn more about the challenges and opportunities in applying digital documentation for sustainable heritage conservation and management.

Professor Mike Robinson Inaugural Lecture
Heritage Re-Imagined: Creating Futures from the Past

on Wednesday 27 April 2022, 5.30-7.30pm

This is an open invitation.

In this lecture Professor Robinson draws upon his work of over thirty years and in more than thirty countries to examine the changing relationships between societies and heritage. In an unstable world of resource scarcity and cultural tension, he argues that we are not making the most of the heritage resources we have and their latent potential to create significantly better futures.

Professor of Cultural Heritage at Nottingham Trent University, Mike was formerly Professor of Cultural Heritage at the University of Birmingham and Director of the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage. He was previously Founder and Director of the Centre for Tourism and Cultural Change at Leeds Metropolitan and Sheffield Hallam Universities. He is founder and Editor of the Journal of Tourism and Cultural Change.

For 35 years Mike's work has focused upon the relations between heritage, tourism, culture and how these realms intersect. Recent research focuses on World Heritage and Sustainable Development, Third Line Construction Heritage in China and Industrial Heritage and Regeneration. He was an advisor to the UNESCO World Heritage Programme in Sustainable Tourism and principal consultant to the UNESCO World Heritage European Journeys Project.

He was a government appointed member of the UK’s Expert Panel to determine the UK’s Tentative List for World Heritage and has worked with UNESCO offices in China, South East Asia, Central Asia, the Middle East and various parts of Europe. He works closely with the Council of Europe’s Cultural Routes Programme and is Principal Consultant of the Tourism, Heritage and Enterprise Group. Mike has worked on heritage and tourism related projects in over 40 countries with UNESCO, European Commission, Council of Europe and various State Agencies and NGOs.

Welcome everyone to "Virtual Traditions",

Timeline photos 26/07/2021

The social function of the home can be explained in terms of “why” the home exists, “for what” it exists and what is its “purpose”.

“The ‘why’ looks towards the past and seeks to give an explanation”: it is an efficient and humane way to satisfy many needs.

The “what for” looks towards the future... The “what for” invokes a function, first for its members, but later on for others outside of the home, and eventually reaching society as a whole … A home without a “what for” can function for quite some time… But it will be lacking a “purpose”, which is the “what for” as defined, shared, and accepted by that particular community’s members…

This “purpose” is not usually stated explicitly … but this does not mean that they do not have an implicit “purpose” or “project”. The lack of a “project”, or the existence of several unshared “projects”, implies a lack of unity, and this is a threat for the home’s continued existence."

(Abdelmonem and Argandoña, 2020, 6)
