Wednesday 1 November 2017, 5.30-7.30pm – Liverpool.
This event is part of Engage Liverpool Seminar Series 2017 and the guest speaker is Minja Yang, former Deputy Director of the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, Paris and Director of the UNESCO WHS Regional Office in Delhi, currently President and Professor at Raymond Lemaire International Centre for Conservation at the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium.
Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City has been declared by UNESCO to have features of outstanding universal value, which puts Liverpool in the Premier League of world cities. With the status under threat, our 2017 seminar series asks if we have sufficiently valued what being a UNESCO World Heritage Site confers.
Entitled “Liverpool UNESCO World Heritage Site – A Status worth fighting for?” this free seminar series will bring UNESCO heritage officials to venues within Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City – currently inscribed on UNESCO’s List of World Heritage in Danger.
