Progressing With Heritage

Public Forums & Workshops (March – May 2011)

With George Town’s listing as a World Heritage Site, heritage now plays an important role in the future of Penang. It is timely for Penang to accelerate its learning curve in the field of heritage management and equip itself for the conservation and sustainable development of its heritage resources.

Eight Australian heritage specialists will be invited to speak on the different aspects of heritage management.

Public Forums & Workshops
The public forums are a 1-day affair (on Saturdays) consisting of public lectures in the morning and a lively forum in the afternoon. This is followed by 2 days of workshops (on Sunday and Monday)

While the public forums aim to raise the general level of interest and awareness in conservation issues, the follow-up workshops are designed as a platform for brainstorming and sharing between stakeholders and specialists.
