Capacity Building

On the Road to Québec Online Workshops

“On the Road to Québec” is a series of online workshops offered by the OWHC to members of its network. The workshops took place between February 9 and March 18, 2021 and were open to elected officials, experts and site managers working in a city that is a member in good standing of the organization.

The topics of the workshops were inspired by the theme chosen for the 16th World Congress of the OWHC “Enhancing Livability in World Heritage Cities”, by the global COVID-19 crisis as well as by the more general challenges that await cities in the 21st century.

The workshops were offered in a very dynamic format, starting with an introduction offered by an expert on the chosen theme, followed by presentations of case studies by member cities of the network. The workshop was then divided into sub-groups, in order to push the discussion more in depth and exchange with colleagues from all over the world.

By sharing their ideas and experiences, participants contribute to the development of the next OWHC scientific symposium.

Capacity Building Workshop

1st edition

In 2017, the OWHC Regional Secretariat for Northwest Europe and North America organized a successful workshop on heritage management and communication in Vienna. During this workshop, it became clear that knowledge and expertise in citizen and local community involvement is an important factor contributing to the successful work of heritage managers.

The OWHC General Secretariat then organized another training workshop for experts on citizen participation in cultural heritage. Offered to all OWHC members, the event took place on June 1-2, 2019, in Krakow.
