UNESCO Chair network meeting

09:35 by Cornelius Holtorf

Cornelius Holtorf took part in the First International Symposium of UNESCO Chairs in Anticipatory Systems, Futures Studies and Futures Literacy at the University of Trento, Italy (19-20 June 2019).

He presented the work of our UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures for an audience of circa 60 participants who had come from as far as Malaysia, New Zealand, South Africa and Chile. Among them were six other UNESCO Chairs from Finland, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, UK and Uruguay plus members of their team as well as at least as many aspiring applicants.

The symposium was followed by a separate meeting on 21 June which discussed the prospects of establishing a Global Futures Literacy Network.

In 2017, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, was awarded a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. This is one of eight Chairs in Sweden, and the only one within the cultural sector. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, alongside Anders Högberg and Sarah May, will continue to generate ideas through this forum.
