NIT Urban Heritage Lab is an initiative of the Netherlands Institute in Turkey that investigates the role of tangible and intangible cultural heritage in achieving inclusive, circular, and sustainable cities. After the successful 2021 UHL course on Industrial Heritage, the Netherlands Institute in Turkey, in collaboration with Middle East Technical University (METU), Radboud University, LDE Centre for Global Heritage and Development, and the Netherlands Consulate-General in Istanbul, offers a series of public webinars on Water Heritage for Sustainable Cities. These webinars address past experiences and current and future challenges of urban water supply. With a focus on Istanbul’s water heritage, the program explores how water heritage can act as a driver for sustainable development and raise awareness of contemporary water issues worldwide.

During October, webinars take place on Fridays between 4 and 6 pm Istanbul time.

Date: 7 October 2022, Friday
