OpenHeritage joined the session ‘Re-Inventing Heritage for Sustainable Urban Regeneration’, which took place on 2 October as part of Mannheim2020 – the 9th European Conference on Sustainable Cities & Towns, organised by ICLEI Europe and the City of Mannheim. The City of Sunderland, where one of the OH Cooperative Heritage Labs (Sunderland High Street West) is located, presented their views on how heritage, culture and creativity are relevant for the sustainable development of the city, specifically looking at the examples of adaptive heritage reuse initiatives beneficial to the local community.
