On 11 June 2014 at 6pm (please arrive by 5.30pm) the UniSA Hawke Centre on North Terrace will host a presentation by James Rebanks, which will examine the topic of 'UNESCO World Heritage Site status: is there opportunity for economic gain?'.
World Heritage bid - Mt Lofty Ranges
The venue for the presentation is the Allan Scott Auditorium, UniSA City West Campus Hawke Building. This is a FREE event and one that will examine World Heritage sites across the world to discover the motivation behind the heritage listings, including economic development.
The lecture will spotlight the Mount Lofty Ranges World Heritage bid that has been proposed by six councils in South Australia. The area covered by the bid encompasses around 150,000 hectares of land stretching from the Barossa Valley through to the Fleurieu Peninsula. A successful bid will ensure the global protection and promotion of this area for its cultural and agricultural assets. This presentation is the second in the series examining UNESCO World Heritage Sites.
