The first meeting is to initiate the Network with a small group of identified heritage practitioners from the region in order to develop the regulatory framework for building a larger Network. In addition, it plans to develop a working model for future meetings of the Network which will form a key component of keeping the Network alive and meaningful.

a. Development of a regulatory framework for the Networking
A draft document will be developed by WHITRAP and distributed among the participants of the workshop and also among some of the potential (20) networkers and finalized at the meeting. (Note: will contact you on this by a separate mail)


b. The Workshop

WHITRAP Shanghai is strongly linked to the Tongji University Faculty of Urban design which has gained a high reputation both in China and abroad. Their key strengths in relation to Heritage are architecture/Urban/Town/Rural conservation and cultural landscapes. In addition to their work throughout China particularly related to World Heritage (Nominations/ Management/ Planning), they make a serious attempt to focus on both theory and practices of conservation and management of heritage. Furthermore, their recent initiative, the international peer review Journal in English is becoming a lead journal outside Europe, focuses extensively on heritage issues. This indeed is an important window to both China and the rest of the world.
