Museums and Sustainable Development
27-28 May 2012, University of Split
The role of museums as civic spaces for intercultural dialogue and sustainable heritage development has been debated and developed through several local, national and international gatherings. Major meetings of ICOM and the World Commission for Culture and Development, both held in Manila in mid 1990s called for an integrated approach to culture and nature in dealing with movable and immovable, tangible and intangible heritage. The Tshwane Declaration of 1997, a standard setting document for tourism development of heritage resources of significance in post-apartheid South Africa, provides a meaningful framework for museums and community engagement in sustainable development. Such diversity of community, governmental and professional advocacy inform the inclusiveness as embedded in the current Strategic Plan of ICOM (www.icom.museum).
