ESACH Blog ft. European Heritage Tribune
Check out one of our latest ESACH blog reading recommendations featured on the European Heritage Tribune website! The article "Beyond Engagement: Community-Led World Heritage Nominations of Indigenous Sites in Australia" by Shari Bone refers to two different indigenous sites in Australia that were inscribed on the World Heritage List. The author analyses the active participation of different indigenous communities (the Gunditjmara and the Ngurra-Ngarli) in the nomination processes and brings awareness to the importance of community engagement within heritage practices.
