Know the Significance of Conservation of Cultural Heritage

by Heritage 21 Heritage 21

Heritage sites are a symbol of history. Conservation of cultural heritage includes protection and restoration using "any techniques that prove effective in keeping that property in as close to its original condition as possible for as long as possible.

An appealing heritage environment helps in drawing external investment as well as maintaining existing businesses of all types, not simply tourism-related. Similarly as banks prefer to build stately, old-fashioned facades, even when located in commercial malls, a city needs old structures to maintain a sense of permanency and heritage.

Conservation and restoration play a cultural role. Old structures teach us about the history that happened before we were born and promotes the respect for those who lived in different times and different societies. Architectural monuments cultivate pride of our past and heritage making us unique in the world.

Individuals are extremely glad for their local history, but don’t always express how much they value a spot until it is threatened. Since it adds character and uniqueness to an area, heritage is a fundamental in creating a ‘sense of place’ for a community.

At the centre of any conservation of cultural heritage strategy is a statement of cultural significance, derived from a thorough physical, historical and comparative analysis of the place. Adaptive reuse of heritage buildings is a big factor in creating sustainable communities. Heritage buildings add value to regeneration projects, both in terms the economic and environmental advantage of reuse over new build and in adding character to an area. Heritage spots can be a potent driver for community action.

Improved community values and greater social consideration can be accomplished through a focus on heritage matters. The heritage spots are an excellent local educational resource for people of all ages. Finding about the history of a place is a decent way of bringing communities together through a shared understanding of the unique cultural identity heritage places provide to an area.

Areas where the heritage is comprehended and valued tend to be better looked after than those where heritage things have no connection with the community. Such connections help to encourage civic responsibility and citizenship and add to everyone’s quality of life.

Improved community values and greater social inclusion can be acomplished through a focus on heritage matters. The heritage spots are an excellent local educational resource for individuals of all age groups. Finding out about the history of a place is a good way of bringing communities together through a shared understanding of the unique cultural identity heritage places give to an area.

The conservation of historic buildings is a one-way street. There is no option to renovate or to save a historic site once it’s gone. Besides, we can never be certain what will be valued in the future. This reality brings to light the significance of locating and saving buildings of historic significance―because once a piece of history is destroyed, it is lost forever.

So, Conservation of Cultural Heritage is necessary.
