Heritage can be defined as something we inherit from the past, is considered of value and is worthy of preservation for future generations. This shows that heritage is subjugated to influences and threats over time. To ensure that the heritage is passed on to future generations in a reasonable state, the attributes and elements that express its value must be retained. This requires a dynamic process of responding to the constantly changing context surrounding the heritage. Time leads to the aging of the material of which the tangible heritage is created. Time also chips away at the intangible heritage as it is passed on from generation to generation. An understanding must be reached on how we understand heritage, what it is that is of value and in what state we need to pass it on to future generations.
‘Revisiting Kathmandu’ is an international symposium on the conservation of living urban heritage. It has taken place in the context of a rapidly changing understanding of heritage as a concept that does not only include monuments any more, but complex urban spaces, where people live, work, worship and celebrate festivals. As values and aspirations of society change, the approach of urban conservation must adapt and respond to this change.
The symposium discussed on how to maintain the delicate balance between conserving what represents the intrinsic character and value of the historic city, while, at the same time, allowing for the change that is required for the city to continue to develop.
The symposium was not looking for specific solutions. It was designed to contribute to changing the overall approach and mindset in heritage conservation. That might be a lofty and implausible goal, but even the most minuscule contribution in initiating discussions in this direction could be considered a major achievement.
