World Heritage Day - Shared Heritage

EWH celebrates World Heritage Day with a seminar looking at 'Shared Heritage'.

Apr 14, 2010

World Heritage Day is celebrated around the globe, and here in Edinburgh we are taking as our theme ‘Shared Heritage’. A series of speakers at the Scottish Storytelling Centre on Friday 16 April will explore the benefits the World Heritage Site can bring to all members of the community.

Keynote speaker:

James Rebanks, Rebanks Consulting - World Heritage Status: The Economic Gain - James Rebanks has recently completed ground-breaking research into the socio-economic value of World Heritage Sites.
