The Mount Lofty Ranges possess unique qualities as a working agricultural region – similar regions in Europe have been awarded UNESCO World Heritage Site status.
A consortium of regional councils and regional development networks have proposed that the agricultural landscapes of the Mount Lofty Ranges should also be given UNESCO World Heritage Site status – but what makes a site unique, special and globally important?
Professor Amar Galla, Executive Director of Copenhagen’s International Institute for the Inclusive Museum, will visit Adelaide next month to consider these questions, as well as explore the social, cultural and economic benefits.
Professor Galla is an internationally renowned expert on cultural and world heritage, and has provided strategic cultural leadership as Australia’s first Professor of Museum Studies.
His work on ecomuseology as a tool for sustainable heritage development attracted several awards, including European Best in Heritage Award (2008). Galla edited the book World Heritage: Benefits Beyond Borders, which marked the 40th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention (2012).
Don’t miss the opportunity to hear from one of the world’s leading voices on heritage issues.
