The next project will be a Study Tour with meetings and workshops in Maroc in connection with the Annual General Assembly in Marrakesch 12-20 Oct. 2019. After a thorough consultation of the National Committee of ICOMOS Marroco, two of our members who have worked in the region, Dr. Ai Tee Goh (ICOMOS Malaysia) and Dr. Romeo Carabelli (ICOMOS France and Italy) kindly agreed to organize a study trip on “Shared Built Heritage Management” with many encounters between local colleagues and stakeholders along with ICOMOS Marroco. Encounters and discussions are requested from NGOs, Associations, Journalists, Urban Planning Offices, Heritage Consultants, Universities and ICOMOS colleagues. The tour will start in Marrakesh and ends in Mellila, from where one could catch a flight to Malaga or Madrid, Spain, to Marrakesh or Fes, or a Ferry to Malaga, Spain. Transportation in the country will be with public transportation (Busses, Train and High Speed Train, Cars) In order to make it possible for you to reserve the time and to promote a rich participation, we present you a draft for the study trip. So far, in addition to the two organizers, 6 colleagues have already expressed their interest. A total of 20 person would be fine.
