This conference aims to bridge the gap between heritage and innovation and to encourage younger generations to bring ideas from the fourth industrial revolution into the heritage scene. The overall aim is to find a way in which heritage and development not only co-exist in harmony but for heritage to eventually lead to sustainable development and ensure the well-being of the societies living around it. The conference is organized by the UNESCO Chair for World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism Management at the German University of Technology in Oman and the Arab Regional Centre for World Heritage (ARC-WH) in Bahrain and will be implemented in close cooperation with a number of international and regional organizations.
