Heritage and global challenges
Heritage is engagement with the past in the present. Heritage is, therefore, entangled in, and crucial for a deeper understanding of some of the most important contemporary global challenges: Migration, integration, conflict and cultural destruction, climate change and adaptation to rapid and major technological changes.
HEI: Heritage Experience Initiative aims at developing critical heritage research in close cooperation with the heritage sector and will experiment with new teaching models.
