We’ll be at the 21st General Assembly and International Symposium ‘HERITAGE as a BUILDER of PEACE®’
March 1-3, 2019 | Florence, Tuscany, Italy
106 Group enjoyed the chance to present at the Beyond Tourism event in February 2019 and to participate in a movement connecting cultural experience and world peace.
The 21st General Assembly and International Symposium will bring together a community of academicians, practitioners, and members of the Beyond Tourism Movement. International attendees (including us!) work year-round at heritage sites to educate visitors, protect land and heritage, and document history and culture throughout the world.
The purpose of the 21st General Assembly and International Symposium is to promote dialogue among cultures and share discoveries and experiences.
Our CEO, Anne Ketz, will be presenting at the 21st General Assembly and International Symposium this year. Don’t miss her dialog on “Managing the Impacts of Cruise Ship Tourism.” Anne has served as Vice President of ICOMOS Committee on Interpretation and Presentation for the last four years and recently began to serve as an expert member of the ICOMOS International Cultural Tourism Committee
Please join Rachel Ketz, International Development Associate for the 106 Group, as she presents “Truth and Reconciliation through Heritage Management and Interpretation.”
