Background 

The United Nations 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development marks a substantial step forward for sustainable development in many fields, including culture. An explicit recognition is given to the fundamental role that heritage and culture play in human development and serve as an enabler and a driver of Sustainable Development. The UNESCO recognizes that culture has a major impact on reducing poverty and contributes to a development, which is primarily human, inclusive and fair. Similarly, the ILO acknowledges the potential of cultural activities to provide significant business and employment opportunities and generate opportunities for decent work for men and women around the world.

What the Master is about

The Master in World Heritage and Cultural Projects for Development aims, through a multidisciplinary approach, to impart necessary competencies and skills in management of cultural resources, design and implementation of cultural projects, and promotion of World Heritage Sites and other UNESCO designations.

The course combines essential knowledge of cultural economics and cultural policies with the competences needed to design projects in the cultural field. The programme explores in detail the economic, social, institutional and legal considerations that govern the diverse UNESCO Conventions (World Heritage, Intangible Heritage, Diversity of Cultural Expressions) and programs (eg: Creative Cities, Man and Biosphere, Global Geoparks, Memories of the World).

The Master focuses on developing economically sound projects designed around a wide spectrum of cultural activities in the fields of natural and cultural heritage, cultural and creative industries, and tourism.

The Programme puts significant emphasis on strategic management competencies and project management skills for the promotion of cultural resources, with a prominent attention to the cultural market analysis and set-up and management of cultural districts.
