MoHoA wants to increase Africa’s representation on UNESCO World Heritage List

Oct 26, 2021 | Forum, News

The Modern Heritage of Africa (MoHoA) foundation that is based at the University of Cape Town is planning a Symposium in September 2021 on modern heritage in Africa and a second symposium at the University College of London in 2022 on Modern Heritage in the Anthropocene. The intended outcome of the symposia is to propose “a The Cape Town Document on Modern Heritage supporting efforts to modify international policy and guidance on modern heritage in line with present and future planetary challenges of ecological, social and economic equity” and to present this to the World Heritage Committee. Modern heritage is amongst the most marginalised heritage categories in Africa and requires more research and documentation to better protect, increase resilience and subsequently Africa’s representation on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
