Towards a Common Method for Accessing Mixed Cultural and Natural Resources: A Case Study Approach, A Cross-Disciplinary Conference
Proceedings of a conference titled “Towards a Common Method of Assessing Mixed Cultural and Natural Resources” that took place in March 1998. The conference aimed to raise awareness of the increasing divergence between the fields of ecological and cultural heritage preservation, and to highlight the need for a common value system that would bring the two fields together to create an interdisciplinary program for the preservation of cultural landscapes. Addressing the failure of both disciplines to collaborate with good results, the conference delegates worked to establish common ground and to pursue future partnerships that would benefit both fields. A conceptual declaration was signed by all conference delegates, outlining strategies for the achievement of shared goals.
