Recent years have witnessed the growing, worldwide phenomenon of conserving the industrial heritage, due to the recognition of its cultural, architectural, community, urban and tourism value in the urban and rural space. Many structures such as factories, agricultural facilities, military buildings; transportation facilities like train stations, airports, terminals, port warehouses, bridges and railroads; and quarries, broadcast stations and other industrial facilities have finished their original function and are restored for renewed use.
The purpose of the conference is to expose the target audience to current international knowledge while focusing on good practices in the field at the micro and macro levels; to present successful worldwide initiatives to conserve and reuse industrial buildings and complexes; to protect and conserve the outstanding universal value of world heritage sites in this field; to institute planning policy that responds to climate change and to implement sustainable development goals; and to include heritage communities as part of the effort to further the conservation of the social, economic and tourism aspect of traditional industry and crafts; to use and develop heritage sites and more.
