Nordic World Heritage Conference 2020 is postponed

The Nordic World Heritage Conference 2020 is postponed to 2021. The conference was to be conducted in the period 8-10. September 2020, but the ongoing corona pandemic has led the conference steering committee in consultation with the Nordic World Heritage Association to decide that the conference will be postponed to 7-9. September 2021.

It is the World Heritage Center Rjukan-Notodden Industriarv at the NIA that plans and conducts the conference on behalf of Rjukan-Notodden Industriarv and the Nordic interest organization Nordic World Heritage Association.

  • Of course, we are sorry that we will not have the opportunity to conduct the conference this year, but look forward to hosting this important conference in 2021, says Runar Lia, Director at NIA.

The conference is conducted with a combination of presentations with international professionals and experiences in our local world heritage. The conference aims to be the most important meeting place for the Nordic World Heritage Sites during the year, gathering between 130 and 200 professionals related to the 41 World Heritage Sites in the Nordic region.
