The notable 25th anniversary of the inscription of the Historic Centre of Prague on the UNESCO World Heritage List will be celebrated by the City of Prague this year by organizing a two-day international conference Prague – World Heritage City 2017,which will take place on 6 - 7 December 2017 in the New Building of the National Museum in the centre of Prague. The conference is designed particularly for experts, representatives of professional organizations and universities, and especially representatives of the UNESCO cities in the Czech Republic and Europe, inter alia cities planning to apply jointly for inscription on the European Heritage Label list with a collective heritage called Werkbund Housing Network in 2019. The programme of the conference will aim to give participants space to share their experiences with life in cities whose historical areas are subject to heritage protection. The structure of the programme will focus on the presentation of a broad scope of the UNESCO World Heritage sites care in the past 25 years, as well as on further on perspectives and ideas about future forms of ensuring the preservation of the outstanding universal values of the historic centre of Prague as a UNESCO site. Expert conference contributions of Czech and foreign experts and an open discussion platform should evaluate the current standard of the Prague Heritage Reservation care, describe the current situation, gather ideas for a possible transformation, and indicate potential limits and possibilities for future development of this issue in the context of the City of Prague administration.
