Today's heritage practitioners need the ability to understand and navigate a world of uncertainty and fast change. There are multiple possible futures, and we build the future in our minds and with our actions today. Established in 2017, the UNESCO Chair provides tools for creative and critical futures thinking.

  • Which future or futures do we preserve the heritage for?
  • Which heritage will help future generations solve important challenges?
  • How can we develop futures thinking (and futures literacy) among heritage professionals worldwide?

Research background:

Prof. Cornelius Holtorf is Professor of Archeology at Linnaeus University and holds the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures.
