World Heritage Catalysis facilitates an emerging commons oriented community of practice applying innovative technologies in the stewardship of World Heritage. But what does this mean?
The following links take you to the most recognised sources of information allowing further exploration.

World Heritage Catalysis takes a commons approach to World Heritage. That means considering natural and cultural heritage of 'Outstanding Universal Value' as non-exclusive and a human right. It explores its relevance beyond property values and contribution to economic development through stewardship of shared resources.

World Heritage Catalysis facilitates an emerging community of practice. That means to, upon the consideration of World Heritage as commons, apply systems thinking, a deep adaptation approach and futures literacy to co-create and improve practice.

Community of practice

a group of people who "share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly" (Jean Lave & Etienne Wenger 1991)

Complexity & systems thinking

the art and science of making reliable inferences about behavior by developing an increasingly deep understanding of underlying structure (Barry Richmond 1987)

Deep adaptation

"It is time we consider the implications of it being to late to avert the implications of a global environmental catastrophe in the lifetimes of people alive today" (Prof. Jem Bendell 2018)

Futures literacy

"the ability to anticipate and create invisible stuff" (Riel Miller 2018)

World Heritage Catalysis applies innovative technologies in the stewardship of World Heritage. Besides making use of software technologies and online tools, it explores organizational innovation,  collaborative technology and legal theory addressing societal needs.
