Zoom Talk about the Conservation Management Plan

DOCOMOMO International is pleased to announce the Zoom Talk event "Conservation Management Plan. Achievements and Possibilities", which is organized in cooperation with Bundesdenkmalamt Austria, and IDS - Institute for Design Strategies (TH OWL). The event will take place on 19th January 2023, 5 pm to 8 pm CET. Register now for free!

Talking about conservation management is talking about the highly professionalized administrative tools and practices in caring about our common heritage. One tool deserves special recognition insofar as its inventors tried to conceive an instrument to structure the complexity of the process of heritage conservation in a transparent and efficient way. The Conservation Management Plan (CMP) was developed 40 years ago and has been received with a lot of enthusiasm ever since. After introducing the tool and its history, current use cases will be presented and attendees will hear about the state of conservation management in Europe. The evening will be concluded with a discussion about the future use of Conservation Management Plans (CMP) in the field of documenting and conserving the heritage of the modern movement in  architecture.
