World Heritage Connections

EWH shares best practice in World Heritage management with partners from around the world.

Dec 19, 2012

On 26th November EWH hosted the visit of colleagues from the Warsaw School of Economics and CEIT Alanova, as part of the SATURN project, funded by the Leonardo da Vinci programme.

This project aims to set standards for vocational training in urban regeneration. On the first day of the visit, colleagues were introduced to EWH's work in the city, visited projects on site and met in the City Chambers to exchange details of own activities in their cities, which will allow expansion of the partnership for the future collaboration.

On the second day partners worked together in a workshop session to shape future arrangements, and define the detailed scope of the project. Thanks to colleagues from the City of Edinburgh Council International Policy unit and the City Design Leader for their support. The next meeting will take place in Warsaw in February 2013.

On 3rd December EWH participated in the second meeting of URBELAC II in Copenhagen. The agenda of the meeting was focused on a range of issues, which allowed the partners exchange best practices.

From an Edinburgh perspective the most important areas of discussion covered: valorisation of the historical centre, World Heritage management, tourism pressure/impact, urban sprawl and transport management in historic cities.

The agenda was combined with the annual conference of URBACT under the title 'Cities of tomorrow - action today'. It allowed the URBELAC network to interact with the key cities and stakeholders in Europe and understand European Commission’s aspirations for the joint collaboration between European cities.
