The aim of our Conference is to fill these often used words like Tourism, Cultural landscapes, Sustainable Approach with contents, with actual meaning and experiences not restraining from concerns, solution ideas and best practice implementation reports.

The start and the end point is Man. All human beings of our days live in a rapidly changing, globalising, technically rushing world, where we want to stay connected to our well and long-time built relations: friends, family, home, town, forests, sea and sun.

It also embraces architecture, nature, traditions, arts and learning. The speed of vehicles can be used for the benefit of transportation, the opportunity to visit distant territories and what is included:

  • Architectural works
  • Works of monumental sculpture and painting
  • Elements or structures of an archaeological nature
  • Inscriptions
  • Cave dwellings and combinations of features
  • Geological and physiographical formations
  • Works of man or the combined works of nature and man as the World Heritage Convention says

Contact has already been established by the World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism Program identifying its vision as it follows: World Heritage and tourism stakeholders share responsibility for conservation of our common cultural and natural heritage of Outstanding Universal Value and for sustainable development through appropriate tourism management. It would be an honour and benefit for all of us, if numerous participants would share their proficient knowledge about this world wide important and relevant subject.
