Welcome to an emerging community of practice & work in progress.


- applied through World Heritage Catalysis

In the effort to facilitate a commons oriented community of practice, technology matters. World Heritage Catalysis applies a variety of technologies - some proprietary, other open source. While we aspire use of open source, cooperatively owned and governed technologies, we take a pragmatic approach (#technology4good)

Being transparent in use of technology we want to explain why we have chosen this specific technology and allow members to make a deliberate decision on the use of the various services. Use of technology may  be subject to change. Some of the below the below services are already integrated, others are under consideration.

Applied in vitsitor management

The Visitor Management Assessment & Strategy Tool (VMAST) is the central tool applied and supported by World Heritage Catalysis. VMAST was developed through UNESCO and is an open educational resource hosted and supported by Zegeba in collaboration with World Heritage Catalysis.


The World Heritage Exchange Trading Systems (WHETS) is incubated through World Heritage Catalysis and intends to supplement VMAST and WHAO with collaborative infrastructures applied locally as well as across organisations. While the exchange trading systems developed in the context of WHETS could apply different technology, mutual credit systems could ideally (this is the hypothesis and focus of action research) be federated through the Credit Commons Protocol.
