About this Event

The economic and social benefits of World Heritage listing are not well understood in the United States. This conference will provide perspective on the impact of World Heritage designation as well as provide an opportunity to discuss lessons learned by a range U.S. World Heritage sites. Hear from local, national and international heritage experts from World Heritage sites such as the recently inscribed Frank Lloyd Wright sites, and sites that have been listed for many years, such as Chaco Canyon National Historical Park. The symposium will also examine the potential for social and economic benefit to sites on the United States Tentative List, looking at ways to begin planning now for future benefit to local communities.
