The Forum is working in partnership with the Hamish Ogston Foundation on a £4.5 million programme to train young people in heritage and craft skills and develop up to 20 practical conservation projects across the Commonwealth. It is the largest Commonwealth heritage project ever undertaken and will be launched in mid-May to mark H.M.The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
The purpose of the conference was to listen to local people, so we could understand better the needs and priorities of the Caribbean region, our first priority, and also identify potential conservation projects as well as the local skills gaps which exist.
The conference covered key current issues including managing change in historic areas, tourism and climate change. To listen to the conference proceedings and the presentations, please follow the links.
