YOCOCU 2018:   Dialogues in Cultural Heritage
The 2018 YOCOCU conference at Matera (Italy) is planned as a forum to promote  dialogues and partnerships between scientists, conservators and managers, on one hand, and  civic and community non-governmental organizations, on the other. All parties will  act as interlocutors and sources of information and advice as pares inter pares, as  partners for heritage since both are interested in new ways to improve the  conservation and management of monumental and portable heritage. YOCOCU has become in the last decade an extraordinary meeting platform where  senior and young researchers,  professionals and students, all animated by the  common goal to preserve and promote heritage, meet to share their stories, to offer their input in research and cultural experiences in the different fields of cultural heritage.
In YOCOCU 2018 this meeting platform will welcome citizens to encourage new  dynamics between these contributors  to ignite the experience and the creativity
in each of these groups for the benefit of cultural heritage management and conservation.
We wish to encourage new ways for active citizen participation in the process of co-organizing heritage projects, in fact increasing their participatory levels and new
communication channels with professionals. This will lead to an increase in the  interest and understanding of the public in cultural heritage problems; and,
conversely, the understanding by professionals of the needs and perspectives of  heritage-concerned groups. YOCOCU 2018 underlines the fact that cultural heritage projects are complex endeavours that require the presence of both parties in order to be successful, useful, relevant and sustainable.
In YOCOCU 2018, cultural heritage professionals and researchers (architects,  restorers, conservation scientists, archaeologists….) and the citizens (association,  municipality,  heritage groups….) will present their projects, accomplished research, future activities or challenges; all together will consult, debate, establish new  decision-making strategies and trace new future priorities; professionals, on their side, will learn the aims and objectives of civic groups and establish conservation
strategies that may keep the integrity of cultural heritage as a first priority.
