Call for abstracts: Heritage for Sustainable Development
ESACH Talks are an interactive, fast-paced event that provides a platform for sharing knowledge amongst students and young professionals working within cultural heritage studies. At the same time, the talks can serve as a meeting point for institutions and young people, where dialogue and involvement is encouraged on both sides. To make things more interesting, each presentation lasts five minutes, and must accompanied by a slide presentation. You can choose to present the work alone or as a team.

The December session will take place online, and it will be centred on the the contribution of cultural heritage in sustainable development. Participation is open to all ESACH members.

• Date: Wednesday 16th December 2020, 7pm CET
