Community led Conservation

3 – 4 April 2019

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi 


A broad aim of the course is to discuss the issues related to participation and encouragement of stakeholders and communities for conservation in India. It will introduce some of the key philosophical issues, practical and management challenges which arise in this process.


People in communities, use their socio-cultural understanding and interact with the environment accordingly. In this manner they become the ‘carriers’ of Cultural Heritage. These characteristics developed by a community are a part of the cultural values of their habitat, making every community unique in its own way. A 2 -day course is designed to create the awareness and realization about how conservation needs community participation and their ancestral understanding about their habitat. Further, the course will discuss about the various aspects such as community’s association with their intangibility, its living heritage and how this can be incorporated in conversation of heritage in India.
