The 14th Montreal Round Table explored trends in heritage conservation in the first two decades of the 21st century. To mark the final year of the Canada Research Chair on Built Heritage, this special event took the opportunity to reflect on the conclusions of previous Round Tables and to predict how these issues might evolve in the future. Canadian and international experts examined conservation challenges related to landscapes, views protection, sustainable development, interdisciplinarity, tourism and sites of memory, both in World Heritage and Canadian contexts. The participants identified several high priority themes for future practitioners including the expansion of the scope of heritage values, the cultural landscapes concept, sustainability, interdisciplinarity, Indigenous heritage, climate change, equitable treatment of all narratives and awareness-raising beyond the heritage community. The Proceedings are available in a PDF format.
