Introduction

With the world’s fast-changing pace, the need to preserve memories of its past lives has grown exponentially. With the conservation of architectural heritage, which is the process of restoring, conserving, and managing changes of a heritage site in a manner that sustains and enhances its significance, the possibility of restoring buildings rather than replacing them, is heightened, for the sake of this preservation.

The benefits of such preservation aren’t only represented in the cultural worth of the landmark or the sense of identity and continuity it provides, but also the tangible economic return it generates, through tourism, to its surrounding community.

Conserving architectural heritage alleviates the economic pressures imposed upon surrounding property and business owners and the community as a whole, by reusing existing fabric with fewer materials, providing opportunities for the use of the labor force, and increasing property value for the building itself and its neighboring. It also reduces environmental pressures since conservation utilizes less than half of the energy used in the construction of new buildings whilst reducing construction waste.

With the aim of further thrusting forward this field, IEREK is organizing its 5th international conference on Conservation of Architectural Heritage (CAH), which will be held online, to host academics from around the world interested in discussing the latest research in cultural heritage protection and the different technological developments and methodologies that have been discovered, as well as the potential of architectural heritage conservation in acting as a catalyst for regeneration in areas like tourism and economic development, making this a great opportunity for planners, engineers and environmentalists to work together and help conserve the architecture and heritage of the cities of the world.

So, how can participating in CAH international Video Conference boost your career, future potentials, and experience?

    •  Obtain an internationally accredited certification of participation which could boost your future academic career opportunities.
