Online Forum:
Integrated Approaches to Europe´s Dissonant Heritage

– Insights, Networks, and Future Perspectives

February 16 – 17, 2022, 13:30 – 17:00, via Webex

All over Europe, dissonant heritage of the 20th century is under discussion. The Online Forum offers the space to talk and have an exchange about integrated approaches to the dissonant heritage in smaller towns and remote areas: How can integrated approaches develop the potential of lingufor society, for tourism and for urban and regional development and make it usable in the long term, e.g. as places of local civic participation and democracy building? Current nationalist narratives, post-colonial and provenance debates prove the relevance of actively dealing with dissonant heritage in Europe, e.g. from totalitarian regimes, wars and conflicts.

A working group of European experts, which has been working intensively on the topic since 2020 as part of the Urban Agenda for the EU, will present and reflect on its results and strategic recommendations. The event aims to raise attention for European networks and associations and offers them the possibility to connect and expand. A market place will offer opportunities for exchange and networking on good practice experiences (e.g. on funding for dissonant heritage), the search for partners and ideas for cooperation.
