Can the need to preserve the rests of our history meet the needs of a community for its economic growth and development? The answer to this question seems almost obvious today, since numerous archaeological sites are extremely popular in tourist visits. However, tourism have also negative effects on cultural heritage and proper management cannot fail to question itself about these effects as well.
The webinar “Archaeological Heritage and Tourism”, organized by ICAHM / ICOMOS, to be held (information webinar), will address best strategies, local empowerment, community-based tourism, spirituality and the Covid-19 pandemic.
WEBINAR 2 – 15 November – Sustainable use and tourism
The sustainable use of archaeological places is a key issue. While the protection of archaeological places and their value is of great importance, there is also the need to cooperate with local actors in developing sustainable strategies for the use of archaeological resources as a means to local sustainable development.
Among the many possible uses of these places, tourism is one of the activities that can have a more drastic impact in the management of heritage places, both positively and negatively.
