Security of Historical Cities 2019 – Partnership for a Safer Everyday Life

Although tourism brings tremendous benefits to host communities, it also can engender a variety of risks and collateral harm to those communities and to tourists themselves in terms of security difficulties and additional protective measures required for the preservation of the valuable historical heritage of the areas involved.

Such risks require answers on how to protect locals and tourists and their property, how to preserve the heritage, and how to enable a sustainable development of the community within the tourist exploitation areas, keeping in mind the individual different conditions of the involved cities and their architectural heritage.

Guided by the need to protect the cultural, historical, and architectural heritage, we are gathering experts with different profiles, as well as stakeholders who are responsible for the quality of life, in an effort to formulate solutions to enable a synergy of both the present and past. The concept of functional partnerships among stakeholders of responsibility will be addressed by local and international experts in the historical city of Solin.
