2) Draft Charter for Cultural Routes

At the Xi’an 15th General Assembly of ICOMOS it was agreed that a Draft Charter for Cultural Routes proposed by the ICOMOS International Committee on Cultural Routes (CIIC) be disseminated amongst ICOMOS members before consideration and adoption at the 16th General Assembly in Quebec.The following wording was resolved at the 15th GA.

Cultural Routes Draft Charter Proposed by the ICOMOS International Scientific Committee on Cultural Routes (CIIC) and recommended by the Executive Committee
Taking into account:
- The evolution of the concept of heritage which today includes territorial scale ensembles.

- That, among the new heritages categories that take into account the values related to the setting, Cultural Routes reveal the macrostructure of heritage on different levels and contribute to illustrate the contemporary conception of cultural heritage values as a resource for sustainable social and economic development.
- That the UNESCO World Heritage Committee recognized Cultural Routes as a heritage category trough its inclusion in the Operational Guidelines for the implementation of the World Heritage Convention approved in February 2005.
- That, considering the present situation, it becomes necessary and peremptory that ICOMOS defines and adopts theoretical, methodological and management principles for the identification and assessment of Cultural Routes.
- That the ICOMOS International Committee on Cultural Routes (CIIC) has worked intensively on clarifying terms and concepts; on defining operational guidelines for the identification, on a scientific basis, of Cultural Routes and on the development of a methodology of action for this specific field.
- That, as a result, the CIIC has elaborated a draft Charter on Cultural Routes, presented to the ICOMOS Bureau (Havana, June 2005) and Executive Committee (Xi’an, October 2005).
The 15th General Assembly of ICOMOS, meeting in Xi’an, China in October, 2005 resolves that:
• The draft Charter elaborated by the International Committee on Cultural Routes (CIIC) be widely disseminated among National and International Committees, so that it can be known and discussed prior to its adoption, as rapidly as possible, as an official theoretical and doctrinal text of ICOMOS.

The draft charter can be found at:

If Australia ICOMOS members wish to make any further comments on the draft charter they need to make they urgently if they are to be able to be considered in the final wording. If any ICOMOS members wish to make comments on the charter could you please send them to Leah McKenzie ( who will compile them for Australia ICOMOS. Could you please submit them by 30 March 2007.


3) Australia ICOMOS New Membership Applications

Australia ICOMOS welcomes new members and encourages applications to be made to the Secretariat. The membership forms and details are available on the web page and from Nola Miles at the Secretariat, phone 03 9251 7131 or Existing members are often involved in encouraging new members to join and in providing nominations, so it is important that they are aware of the procedures.

As a professional organisation, Australia ICOMOS takes pride in its membership. We have an established process for members applications and a number of categories of membership to cater for people with different levels of experience and interests. For full international members, the application requirements are more onerous and include:

·        At least three years professional experience with a core focus on heritage conservation;
·        Demonstrated willingness and ability to practice within the terms of the Burra Charter and the Ethical Commitment Statement;
·        A completed application form with signed nominations by two financial, Full International Members of ICOMOS;
·        A brief (50-100 words) statement from one of your nominators supporting your application;
·        A statement of relevant professional experience;
·        A full Curriculum Vitae; and
·        Payment of the correct fee.

The statement of relevant professional experience is an important component of the application as it allows applicants to demonstrate the required experience focussed on heritage conservation, especially the use of the Burra Charter and ability to practice within the Ethical Commitment Statement. It is different from the standard CV.

All applications are received at the Secretariat and referred to the Executive Committee for consideration. Completed applications must be received three weeks before the Executive Committee meeting date to allow consideration otherwise they are held over to the next meeting.

People who want to apply for Australia ICOMOS membership for the 2007 Extreme Heritage Conference in July and get members rates will need to submit applications to the Secretariat by 4 April to allow consideration at the April meeting.

10) MSc Conservation of Historic Gardens and Cultural Landscapes

February 2007

Dear Colleague,

Conservation of Historic Gardens and Cultural Landscapes Master of Science degree programme

I am writing to let you know about the new master's degree course in the Conservation of Historic Gardens and Cultural Landscapes which will commence in October 2007 at the University of Bath.

A postgraduate programme open to surveyors, architects, landscape architects, archaeologists, horticulturists, land managers and suitably qualified candidates from other fields including conservationists, planners, geographers, engineers, and historians with a first degree or equivalent professional qualification or relevant experience. The programme is also available to graduates in other fields who wish to gain a vocational degree, perhaps as a basis for a career move.

The programme is intended to take students from a range of backgrounds and provide them with analytical and practical skills and a thorough grounding in the history, theory and practice of garden and cultural landscape conservation and management, covering both designed and evolving organic landscapes, complex cultural landscapes and large landscape zones.

The training will be sufficient for graduates to act as managers, conservation officers and consultants in the field. The course may be taken over two years part-time or one year full-time. This requires attendance at the university either one day or two days per week over two semesters. Each semester contains eleven weeks of teaching, so the commitment for attending the lectures, seminars and visits by the part-time route is just 22 days over the year or 44 days full-time. The course is taught by practising professionals and leading academics.

There are still a few vacancies available for 2007/08, commencing in October 2007. See for further details including the application form. Details are also available from Emma Greeley, University of Bath, Department of Architecture and Civil Engineering, Bath BA2 7AY, UK, telephone 01225 386908, fax 01225 386691 or E-mail To secure a place you should apply as soon as possible.

In order to enhance balanced transformation of environment, activators of local and national management of urban heritage need to be involved with new partners and various processes with valid and accurate argumentation, facts and know-how. Enhancing professional contribution of heritage sector to urban dynamics, heritage knowledge and skills should be integrated with urban planning and management. Nordic wooden towns and modern architecture are Finland's contribution to urban cultural heritage.

International guidance and professional networking, which are provided by ICOMOS, by its International Committees in general and the International Committee on Historic Towns and Villages (CIVVIH) in particular, enhance the expertise dealing with urban heritage. The seminar aims at sharing expertise on current management tools and on the implementation of guidelines, policies and practices on urban heritage.
