160 x 160 natural and social disastersModeradores: Adriana Scaletti y Paulo Dam, Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú

Fecha: 3 de Mayo / Hora: 13:00 UTC 


The session, «Natural and social Disasters in World Heritage Sites» is the first of the Globinar and therefore of particular importance to introduce some relevant issues: World Heritage sites are the center of the discussion, but their complexity requires an analysis from broad perspectives that go beyond the spatial and also consider multiple components. In this sense, heritage is the reflection and response of a varied, immense society; at the same time in danger of disappearing and a cornerstone for the construction of new, even more complex expressions and identities. But natural and social disasters -notably among them the current COVID-19 pandemic- are also part of that identitarian construction: society responds to them in different and as such they condition our present and future experience- again, in mostly positive developments, but always with the threat of failure or repeated defeat. In this, too, World Heritage Sites reflect the human experience.

Fecha: 5 de Mayo / Hora:  13:00 UTC


COVID-19 has had diverse global implications that have forced the entire society to stop and rethink its way of life, interactions and customs. It has demonstrated the vulnerability of tourist destinations, making it imperative to find new paths. Furthermore, COVID-19 has required adaptive government management to cope with uncertainty. The absence of a roadmap has left a natural park or a remote town at the same starting point as a tourist city, especially since the sanitary recommendations suggest avoiding crowded areas—one of the main characteristics of urban tourism. To understand the impacts that COVID has had on tourist cities, especially World Heritage sites, we will analyze six cases, each one of them with its own challenges. This will allow us to see how cities are facing the pandemic.

Fecha: 6 de Mayo / Hora: 13h00 UTC


Historic centers are fundamental heritage places in cities, bringing together central functions and historicity, making them spaces of exchange and encounter, of permanence and change, of density and massiveness. The Covid-19 pandemic and the various measures to prevent its spread, such as quarantines and social distancing, have caused historic centers and their inhabitants to be particularly affected, closing most of the public and private activities that gave life to their daily lives and emptying the public spaces where people circulated, met and stayed. Markets and informal commerce is another element to be analyzed in historic centers, both in terms of use and vitality as well as sanitary hygiene. In this context, the present session seeks to inquire into the situation of historic centers faced with pandemics, how these phenomena have affected them and in what way they have faced them throughout their history.

Los centros históricos son lugares patrimoniales fundamentales en las ciudades, reuniendo funciones centrales e historicidad, convirtiéndolos en espacios de intercambio y encuentro, de permanencia y de cambio, de densidad y masividad. La pandemia Covid-19 y las diversas medidas para evitar su propagación, como las cuarentenas y la distancia social, han provocado que los centros históricos y sus habitantes se vean especialmente afectados, cerrándose la mayoría de las actividades públicas y privadas que daban vida a su día a día y vaciándose los espacios públicos donde las personas circulaban, se encontraban y permanecían. Los mercados y el comercio informal es otro elemento a analizar en los centros históricos, tanto por temas de uso y vitalidad como de higiene sanitaria. En este contexto, la presente sesión busca indagar en la situación de los centros históricos enfrentados a las pandemias, cómo estos fenómenos las han afectado y de qué manera los han enfrentado a través de su historia.

160x160 Nature culture approaches


Maya Ishizawa, Independent Heritage Specialist

Fecha: 7 de Mayo / Hora: 11h00 UTC


In the last few years, cultural heritage and nature-based solutions are increasingly being integrated into disaster risk managment strategies and climate change mitigation and adaptation planning. However, the interconnections between natural and cultural heritage are not sufficiently explored and used for disaster risk prevention and post-disaster recovery strategies. In light of the increasing hazards threatening World Heritage, this session explores the opportunities that nature-culture approaches could bring for analyzing heritage places and increase their resilience by planning disasters prevention and recovery in cultural landscapes, urban areas and natural protected areas.

Fecha: 10 de Mayo / Hora: UTC


Cultural and Natural Heritage are among the highest expressions of humanity. However, we assist to a sharp increase of disasters causing severe damage or loss of heritage worldwide. Countries affected by catastrophic events are usually caught unprepared, incapable to deploy mitigation and/or response measures. 

-What does it take to be ready to protect heritage at risk?

-Which DRR policies currently in place are considered a good practice?

-Which Private Public Partnerships can responsible state agencies establish to ensure CNH protection?

These and several other questions should find answers within this session together with some options and proposals.

Fecha: 11 de Mayo / Hora: 13h00 UTC


The cultural heritage may be exposed to different kinds of hazards and disasters, some of them -as earthquakes- such destructive as sudden. A specific particularity of this problem is crossed by the unpredictability factor that usually has an impact over heritage. Therefore, regulations seem to provide not only restrictions but mainly preventing rules in order to protect the cultural heritage. Thus, this session raises some questions such as, how do earthquakes affect different cultural heritage expressions around the world?; how do local, national and international regulations and conventions protect the cultural heritage considering quakes?; or which role carry out the empiric dimension among the relationship between earthquake destruction and cultural heritage protection rules? An international and multicultural discussion leads to a better understanding of this crucial issue.

Fecha: 12 de Mayo / Hora: 13h00 UTC


In recent times, the vulnerability of cultural heritage as a result of both natural and man-made threats has been demonstrated. The consequences of the loss of cultural heritage, in all its expressions, has a strong impact on the history and traditions of peoples and communities, affecting their normal social and economic development. In this scenario, it is essential to install and strengthen capacities for disaster-risk management among all the stakeholders, in order to reduce vulnerability to potential threats. In this sense, investing in prevention through programs, regulations or projects should be a priority task to contribute to the preservation of heritage and its associated communities.

Cultural heritage is rooted in community and place. Cultural heritage sites often sit at the heart of a vibrant ecosystem of community, civic, cultural, and creative organizations. As we enter an era when natural disasters and climate change increasingly threaten cultural heritage (earthquakes, drought, etc.), how can local creative and cultural industries’ ecosystems help to build the resilience of heritage sites? What have we learned from previous disasters? What are the key lessons from the COVID-19 pandemic?

Moderadora:  Cristina Dreifuss, Universidad de Lima

Fecha: 14 de Mayo / Hora: 13h00 UTC


Our session «Informal knowledge, participation and heritage during Pandemics», is inspired by the question «What are the problems of local communities today?» understanding that social practices are not always related to regulations. At the lack of official responses by the authorities, informal associations and grassroots organisations have stepped up to provide for the communities, while trying to maintain their well being. Through the lens of participation, we would like to address the way groups regard heritage (sometimes even as a hindrance), their relationship with it, and the ways they make it part of their daily lives, through adaptations and appropriations. Believing that World Heritage Centres have to be living places, allowing for life to thrive and for communities to strengthen, concepts like identity, agency, place attachment, Do It Yourself solutions and appropriation will be addressed, as ways to incorporate World Heritage Centres to people´s lives, especially in times of COVID.

Our world heritage site is in crisis. Their existence is threatened by natural disasters. In addition, the recent pandemic has shown the weakness of World Heritage sites and how people are essential to the preservation and maintenance of World Heritage sites. Our heritage consists of cultural, natural, or mixed landmarks. Cultural heritage is so exceptional that its importance transcends borders and has shared importance for all of us. Buildings, monuments, artifacts, and structures, as well as the values that exceed art and scholarship, are universal values that belong to all humanity, regardless of where they are located. We intend to conduct this discussion under the title of «The value of culture during Pandemics» to discuss the protection and preservation of our natural and cultural heritage, while giving them life and new meaning, at the same time. In addition, we want to address how cultural values have changed since the COVID-19 pandemic.

Fecha: 19 de Mayo / Hora: 13h00 UTC


The protection of heritage sites against disasters is a complex problem that requires a broad vision. In this sense, it is not possible to address that complexity only from one discipline. Disaster studies have been traditionally dominated by natural sciences and engineering studies, leaving social sciences in a relatively marginal position. Today, this situation is changing, but interdisciplinary research remains restricted. Interdisciplinary research implies a horizontal dialogue and allows enrichment of understanding, but also forces an uncomfortable re-examination of each discipline propositions. With these considerations, this event will gather researchers from different disciplines dedicated to disaster studies to a dialogue around the protection of world heritage sites against disasters.

Communities living in heritage towns, cities and territories, have been seriously affected by confinement and the drop in touristic activity. As a result of these difficulties, community networks have been activated, producing new forms of collaboration to maintain their quality of life. In this roundtable we will look at cases that have affected museums, communities and populations in villages and cities on a larger scale. Each cultural reality has been able to adapt to the new circumstances, often appealing to the traditional and ancestral knowledge of its social skills.

COVID Pandemic tested human behavior in many dimensions. The essential was distinguished from the accessory. Did we stop conserving during Pandemic? As we know we didn’t… So Conservation of natural and cultural treasures in risk has become a deep human need and a main goal of the sustainability global challenge. So what did we learn from the activity of heritage conservation? Beyond research and academic discussion, how is conservation influencing our real life? Is conservation a relevant activity in the 21st century planet? If conservation is a deep human need, what are the other needs involved? What do the native communities, the real masters in conservation, have to say about it? Which sectors of the economy are the main allies of the conservation industry? (and please forget Tourism for a while…) What does conservation offer for better living in an OVER urbanized, unequal and uncertain world?
