The social participation initiative sees the role of values and frames as having a great impact on the way we shape our public engagement strategies and practices into the future.
Inspired and passionate about heritage conservation? Social participation is an initiative, we see the role of values and frames as potentially having a great impact on the way we shape our public engagement strategies and practices into the future.
To build a more sustainable, equitable and democratic world, we need an empowered, connected and durable movement of citizens.
We cannot build this kind of conservation movement through appeals to people’s fear, greed or ego. Such motivations tend to produce shallow, short-lived types of engagement. They are also likely to backfire, actually reinforcing values that undermine social and environmental concern.
How then, do we go about finding solutions to the most important problems of preserving our heritage?
Fostering intrinsic values - among them self care of art objects, aware about handling historical objects, and concern for wrong treatment for any art object or monuments, rise voice. By acknowledging the importance of these values, and the frames that embody and express them; by examining how our actions help to strengthen their conservation; and by working together to cultivate them, we can create a more beautiful this world.
