ICOMOS GA 2020 Booklet

Partners of ICOMOS GA 2020

We are thrilled to announce that GML and Context are Opal Partners of the 20th ICOMOS General Assembly (GA) 2020. Held for the first time in Sydney, this global event is expected to draw over 1000 international and Australian delegates.

The GA will be held at the International Convention Centre in Sydney in October 2020, and will include talks, an exposition, side events and a youth forum.

The theme of the GA is ‘Shared Cultures – Shared Heritage – Shared Responsibility’. In a world where climate change, mass migration, population growth, gender equality and political uncertainty pose complex challenges for heritage conservation, the concept of sharing stewardship and safeguarding our unique and irreplaceable heritage is as vital as ever.

The GA was launched at The Mint on 25 February 2019, where major sponsors were announced. The countdown to the main event begins!
