Raising awareness and increase the capacity of all stakeholders in cultural heritage management is a long term effort. There are many colleagues and friends who have been dedicating their time, energy, and resources to do that. They are my inspirations.
One of the efforts is to raise awareness and to increase capacity about Historic Urban Landscape (HUL). Heritage is not a dead monument, it has a soul and that soul rooted in its context, surrounding, and people around it.
In Indonesia, we have taken small steps to introduce the concept of HUL in Muntok and Banjarmasin. We were simply facilitators, the local authorities and communities were the main actors.
During this COVID19 pandemic, we keep continuing to disseminate the efforts through webinars and distribution of the reports. They are free to download.
