World Heritage Young Professional Forum in Krakow

After 3 days in Warsaw the World Heritage Young Professionals Forum came to Krakow , where the participants will become confronted with the issues related to contemporary challenges faced by historic cities (e.g. mass tourism, suburbanisation, gentrification, unlimited urban development). 

For 10 days 32 young professionals from around the world interested in heritage protection will deal with the heritage lost and restored. The Forum is a companion event to the 41st Session of the World Heritage Committee which will be held in Kraków from July 2.

The main theme of the Young Professionals Forum is lost and recovered heritage. For this very reason it was launched in Warsaw. Poland, the host of the Form, will share its unique experience regarding the reconstruction of damaged and destroyed cities. Some of the major topics addressed during these days will be the destruction of cities due to military conflicts, the problems of rebuilding and the limits of reconstruction.

The Young Professionals Forum will close with the adoption of the Declaration – a message to the members of the 41st Session of the UNESCO World Heritage Committee on how to tackle the destruction of cities.
