Consultation is now open for feedback on the Old and New Towns of Edinburgh World Heritage Site Management Plan (2017-2022).
During the summer last year, over 1000 people took part in a consultation and gave us their views on how they felt the World Heritage Site is being run. What people told us has shaped the draft Management Plan. The draft Plan sets out a number of actions which will be taken forward by the management partners (City of Edinburgh Council, Historic Environment Scotland and Edinburgh World Heritage).
The consultation will run until 5 June 2017. Please take a moment to share your thoughts, ideas and suggestions using our online survey. You can also download the survey and send comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you very much for your help,

World Heritage in Edinburgh
The third annual conference of World Heritage UK, in association with the Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage, University of Birmingham, will take place from 9-10 October at the World Heritage Site of Ironbridge Gorge, where practitioners will join to explore the many ways of communicating World Heritage to different audiences.
The event will be preceded (7-8 October) by a special international meeting to discuss research and global policy focusing on the communication of World Heritage values.
This joint event will take place at Ironbridge Gorge which, in 1986, became one of the first UK sites to be awarded World Heritage Status by UNESCO. The designation of the Ironbridge Gorge as a World Heritage Site recognised the area’s unique contribution to the birth of the Industrial Revolution in the 18th century, the impact of which was felt across the world. The surviving built and natural environment with its museums, monuments and artefacts, serve to remind us of this area’s unique contribution to the history and development of industrialised society.
The Ironbridge International Institute for Cultural Heritage is currently seeking paper proposals for panels from 7-8 October relating to the theme of Communicating World Heritage Values. To see the full call for papers please visit the website link below. Deadline: 15th May 2017.
Full conference programme to be announced. Tickets will go on sale in June. For more information, please visit the conference website HERE
