Week of World Heritage Sites: the Bordeaux Métropole programme
Between September 14 and 20, Bordeaux Métropole will organise the World Heritage Sites’ Week, which includes heritage-related meetings, exhibitions and events.
World Heritage Sites' Week is an action of the AtlaS.WH project, which aims to disseminate and promote the transnational identity of the project’s five world heritage sites: Historic Centre of Porto, Luiz I Bridge and Monastery of Serra do Pilar; Historic Centre of Florence; Bordeaux, Port of the Moon; Old and New Towns of Edinburgh and Santiago de Compostela - Old Town.
AtlaS.WH is co-financed by the Interreg Atlantic Area programme through the European Regional Development Fund that aims to strengthen the links and exchange information between the five WHS of the AtlaS.WH network, through experience sharing and aggregation of best-practices for the sustainable development of Urban World Heritage Sites.
Bordeaux Métropole invites you to the Place de la Bourse, to discover the 11 events of this week's programme.
On September 15, at 15:00, the following conference will be held: "Florence, Santiago de Compostela, Edinburgh, Porto, Bordeaux: 5 UNESCO sites on the map."
In this conference, the Bordeaux Aquitaine urban planning agency (a'urba) will present an atlas of the five partner cities. Using a set of comparative maps, it offers a reading of land use in each municipality, in each listed site and in its buffer zone and explores the potential for exploiting the data extracted from the Open street map.
This approach brings a different perspective on world heritage by understanding these listed sites as key elements of cities and by comparing them.

The conference can be watched live remotely, with simultaneous translation in English and Spanish. Connection details will be communicated shortly
