Programma 26 november 2016 - Water and Heritage for the Future - Policies and Outreach, Fort Vechten, Bunnik (tevens Vlaams-Nederlandse Contactdag!)
Men has long shaped his environment in response to water: from drainage and drinking to defense against flooding and to waterways for shipping, water is a core aspect of heritage structures and narratives in cities and landscapes. In the coming decades, the impact of climate change will threaten existing heritage on coast lines, low-lying delta cities and rural areas as well as irrigation systems and water supplies around the world. Focusing on low-lying deltas, the cities and rural areas placed in them we argue that a comprehensive and interconnected approach to historical research, policy-making, education and outreach is necessary to develop sustainable adaptation strategies for water-related heritage. Such an approach requires novel theoretical, methodological and conceptual approaches as well as instruments that acknowledge the inseparability of natural and cultural heritage, the interconnection of spatial and conceptual aspects of heritage, and the importance of water related heritage for the future including the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). They also require new policy, education, and outreach tools.
The Centre for Global Heritage and Development (CGHD) together with ICOMOS Netherlands cooperate on the collection and presentation of scientific evidence, and the development of policy relevant documentation and awareness raising materials in the project “Water and Heritage for the Future”. This initiative is to stress both within ICOMOS, IUCN, ICOM and other heritage institutions, as well with other water management related organizations the relevance of water related cultural and natural heritage for the future. On the 25th of November, participants will in Delft at the Technical University establish the scientific concepts and evidence from examples from around the world of traditional water heritage icons (material, conceptual and spiritual) established in the past, still existing today and as beacons for the future. On the 26th of November the participants will in Fort Vechten, Utrecht, build upon the outcomes of the fist day (Science Day) and discuss the modes to present and role out the scientific outcomes into policy development and public awareness raising as well as education.
