Workshop Cities, Water and Heritage

6 Jun 09:00 - 18:00

One-day meeting with Turkish and Dutch water and water heritage experts

Organized by Consulate-General of the Netherlands, ISKI and Netherlands Institute in Turkey

What are the best strategies and practices to create public awareness and engagement with water issues? What are the possibilities for water heritage to help highlight water issues in past, present and future? How can water heritage help improve the livability of cities? What are the best ways for scientists, heritage professionals, water authorities and urban planners to work together on creating sustainable links?

This meeting plans to explore these questions by sharing experiences and expertise of water and water heritage experts based in Istanbul and the Netherlands. It will focus on recent and ongoing projects. Among other presentations, it will present proposals that were developed as part of the Water Heritage for Sustainable Cities Project that took place in the autumn of 2022. It will also present the outcomes of the Embassy Science Fellowship of Mariëtte Verhoeven at the Consulate-General of the Netherlands.

More details about the workshop will be published soon.
