Many question whether the inner city of Amsterdam will be turned into a museum now that its Canal District has been registered onto the World Heritage List of UNESCO. Stadsherstel does not think so. On the contrary, the organization has been committed to creating a vital heritage city. Stadsherstel has been actively working in the UNESCO designated protected area, in which approximately 400 of her 500 buildings are situated. To achieve a responsible preservation of urban heritage, a public-private partnership modeled on Stadsherstel offers a wide range of opportunities and possibilities.

From March 28th until April 2nd Stadsherstel will be hosting the international forum Urban Heritage Inc. on public-private partnerships and the preservation of urban heritage. Participants from Russia, Turkey, Morocco, the United Kingdom, Yemen, Tanzania, the United States, Suriname and Indonesia are gathering in Amsterdam from March 31st until April 2nd for an across borders exchange of knowledge. Stadsherstel is hosting the forum in cooperation with her partners the Municipality of Amsterdam, the Dutch Ministry of Education, Culture and Science and the UNESCO World Heritage Centre. The forum has been established with contributions of Creative Urbans and Non-fiction.

At the online Urban Heritage Inc. network, participants will find all information on the forum and their fellow participants. They can stay in touch with Stadsherstel, her partners and the contacts made during the forum. That way the discussion on global questions concerning public-private partnerships and urban heritage can be continued.

We hope you will enjoy the Urban Heritage Inc. network actively.

With kind regards,

The Stadsherstel team
