Yuqi Chock contends that public participation is essential to decision-making in cultural heritage issues because this leads to major benefits such as the successful identification and preservation of intangible heritage values. By outlining the advantages to be gained and by listing possible methods in which the involvement of interested parties in the decision-making process may be attained the poster aims to encourage the practice of participatory conservation to people who have yet to fully engage in this relatively new concept.
The conference will be held Friday and Saturday, 16 & 17 May 2014, at the UCL Institute of Archaeology in Lecture Theatre G6 from 8:30 to 18:00. Conference posters will be on display all day Friday in room 612.
