Cultural Heritage as Oxygen in Times of Crisis


From 27th October 2020 to 30th October 2020, the ROCK Open Knowledge Week will take place online on the topic: Cultural Heritage as Oxygen in Times of Crisis.

After the annulation of the conference in Bologna, scheduled on 14-15 May, ROCK project presents this event during which the ten ROCK cities – Athens, Bologna, Cluj-Napoca, Eindhoven, Lisbon, Liverpool, Lyon, Skopje, Turin, and Vilnius, will share their results, lessons learned, and best practices.
They will present innovative solutions and tools, developed over the three years of the project, which aimed to shape sustainable and heritage-led urban futures.
They also will underline the importance of cultural heritage as a driving force of urban sustainability.

At ROCK Open Knowledge Week will participate local administrations, businesses, policy makers and researchers, more generally to all those looking for new ways in which cultural heritage can contribute to the regeneration, sustainable development and economic growth of cities.

The event will take place online and the participation is open for everyone and free of charge.

It will be possible to engage with other participants in chat rooms, answer surveys, leave ideas on a brainstorming whiteboard, and, in a dedicated Q&A space, ask questions.
