Heritage and Sustainability: The improbable couple

2 March 2017 (5.30 – 7.00pm)

Organised jointly with IHBC Scotland Branch

Heritage and Sustainability are often assumed unrelated, and consequently, studied separately. On the one hand, heritage is assumed focused on material resources, driven by past values, primarily historic. On the other hand, sustainability is assumed focused on people, driven by present and future values, primarily economic, social and environmental. Though, recent studies contradict this opposition revealing the economic, social and environmental values of heritage and the sustainability in historic values. Being a social construction, heritage was found people-driven, material and immaterial, movable and immovable, natural and cultural. This lecture aims to discuss the controversial relation between heritage and sustainability.
