“World Heritage Landscapes”

The Gardens Trust is running a series of online (Zoom) talks focusing on gardens within World Heritage Sites.

To mark 50 years of UNESCO World Heritage, this 7-week series will celebrate some of the UK’s World Heritage landscapes. Starting with an overview of World Heritage values and the changing nature of the UK list, the series will aim to enthuse people about individual sites around the country, highlighting what makes each one exceptional, the advantages and challenges of being inscribed on the list, and the issues around sustainable future management of these global assets.

Webinars are on Tuesdays, 10am to 11.30am.
