Sustainable Development and World Heritage: Exploring issues in Switzerland
Peter Larsen, scientific collaborator within the Hub / Institute GEDT, has recently published a report entitled "Sustainable Development and World Heritage Site Management in Switzerland: Perceptions and Priorities". This report summarizes the key findings of a rapid survey on the main concerns and issues identified by site managers and other stakeholders in the Swiss context. The first section explores the perceptions of sustainability issues and challenges, while the second examines experiences with and conditions for sustainable development action in the Swiss World Heritage context.
Along with the report, the Social Anthropologist and Filmmaker Melanie Nielsen Emonet has produced a short film that explores the topic of World Heritage and Sustainable Development in Switzerland based on interviews and footage from a national dialogue. Authors expect the film to stimulate further debate and action on the topic.24 février 2019
