|Email item||Print item||
The International Environment Institute of the University of Malta will be organizing a seminar and workshop on the subject of Cultural Landscapes of the Maltese Islands, between the 11th and 14th of November 2008 in Malta and in Gozo. This event is being carried out under the auspices of the Maltese National Commission for UNESCO, and with the collaboration of the Malta Environment and Planning Authority and the Ministry for Gozo.
The objective of this initiative is to highlight the diverse values of the unique cultural landscapes of the Maltese Islands and to evaluate the challenge inherent in maintaining their character in the face of a dynamic and changing culture. Lecturers from both Malta and overseas will share their expertise on various aspects of cultural landscapes, whilst guiding participants through interactive hands-on exercises during workshops being held in Malta and Gozo.
The seminar, particularly through its workshops, is also intended to provide additional feedback on the subject in view of the currently ongoing public consultation on the Eco-Gozo vision.
The public is invited to participate in this three-day event, further details of which are available on the IEI website http://www.um.edu.mt/iei/events/culturallandscapes. Lectures will be held on the 11th (in Malta), while participants will have the option of attending one of the workshops, that is, on either the 12th (in Malta) or 13th (in Gozo). The round-table discussion will take place on the 14th at the Ministry for Gozo. Attendees may also opt for participation in selected daily sessions.
This event is funded through a UNESCO grant and, for this reason; attendance is free-of-charge. Registration may be effected online at http://www.um.edu.mt/iei/events/culturallandscapes/register, or by contacting the Seminar secretariat on 2340 2873 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
