Asia-Europe urban heritage project
November 11, 2017
We collaborated with the Asia-Europe Foundation on a series of case studies highlighting the work of INTO member organisations to sustain urban heritage in Asia.

Conservation work at Merdeka Stadium carried out by Badan Warisan Malaysia
These profiles were considered at an Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in July 2012 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia, when experts including INTO Chairman, Professor Molesworth, INTO Executive Committee member, Catrini Kubontubuh, Dr Shobita Punja, formerly of INTACH, and Laurie Neale of Europa Nostra joined governmental and civil experts from ASEM member countries to discuss the role of Public-Private Partnerships in the management of historic urban landscapes.
The case studies were then presented to the 5th ASEM Culture Ministers’ Meeting which addressed the theme ‘Managing Heritage Cities for a Sustainable Future’, raising further awareness of INTO and the work of its member organisations.
