ICCROM , International Centre for the Study of the Preservation and Restoration of Cultural Property, launches a new webinar on June 24 discussing how the pandemic has affected conservation work and education.
During 2020 one of the major challenges in cultural heritage was related to conservation. With lock-down in place many heritage sites could not receive care as professionals could not travel and there were no capacity in the local community.
On the other hand heritage sites and cities suffering from over-tourism got a much needed relief that could not have been possible under pre-covid life.
