Heritage Consultancy: Global Challenges (HUMM010)
When looking for solutions to complex global challenges such as climate change or the management of natural resources, organisations are increasingly recognising the strategic benefits of interdisciplinarity. Heritage practitioners have a significant contribution to make, thanks to their expertise in interpreting past narratives and understanding of how community identities are informed by the historical environment. To effect change through a future-facing approach to heritage often involves working with organisations outside the heritage sector, with heritage consultancy now a growing practice. This module will enable you to gain consulting experience on a real-life project, working as part of a team.
