s/n members Hassan Pitts & Jennida Chase were invited by the UNESCO/UNITWIN Chair on Cultural Heritage and Digital Memory to participate in the international conference to mark the 30th anniversary of the UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Programme at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris, France in November. This year’s conference theme is Transforming knowledge for a just and sustainable futures.
Some of the objectives of this conference are to Invigorate greater interdisciplinary cooperation and catalyze new research collaborations! (So you know we’re excited!) The conference will also serve as a platform for generating foresight in priority thematic areas and to envisage the further evolution of the UNITWIN/UNESCO Chairs Programme. It will feature plenary and parallel sessions on developing foresight within and across UNESCO’s priority programmes and provide opportunities for networking.
