UNESCO Heritage Awards 20th Anniversary Celebration: Asia-Pacific Heritage 20/20 Forum and 2019 Awards Ceremony


The year 2019 marks 20 years of the UNESCO Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation which was conceived in Penang, Malaysia. The 20th anniversary presents an opportune moment for reflection not only on the achievements and lessons learned from the UNESCO Heritage Awards programme, but also to review how far heritage conservation has come in the past two decades.

It will also present an opportunity to chart the course and a future vision for the next two decades on the role and contribution of cultural heritage more broadly to sustainable development, within the broad framework defined by Agenda 2030, along with key partner institutions and thought leaders in the field.

We cordially invite industry practitioners, emerging professionals and heritage enthusiasts to join us for this special occasion! Seize this chance to witness the announcements of 2019 winners, get inspired by our speakers and network with other attendees from all over the world!

**Our event will coincide with the Seventh Asia-Pacific Urban Forum (APUF-7) from 15-17 Oct 2019 in Penang, Malaysia. This is an event being organized by the UN-Habitat and UN ESCAP. It requires prior registration to attend. Access: https://www.apuf7.org/
