Assessing, Measuring and Prioritizing Heritage Values – Oslo, October 2014

The second second workshop was held in Oslo, Norway on October 2  and 3 2014 and dealt with how heritage values are assessed and measured in Europe. Of course this is not an easy task as heritage values are understood differently by different sectors and in different countries. Second, heritage values are diverse, changeable, context-dependent, and often dissonant.

During workshop II the following questions were investigated:

  • What methods are in place across sectors, disciplines and countries for assessing, measuring and prioritizing heritage values?
  • Whose heritage values are being assessed?
  • How can heritage values be negotiated and compromised if they are in conflict?
  • How can the assessment and measurement of heritage values inform decision-making and heritage policy?

The organisators of the second workshop, Joel Taylor and the NIKU team, have asked all participating parties for some input on the term ‘value(s)’. The team developed a few activities on the first day of the workshop to help the participants consider the term ‘value(s)’

For the workshop, discussion documents have been prepared that relate to the five workshop discussion groups. Their aim was to provide common ground amongst a diverse group of participants, and to generate ideas that can connect to everyone’s experiences. The five themes in the discussion groups where labelled Why, Who, What, Where & When  and How.

The Niku team has prepared a summary of the final session. This session aimed to connect over-arching issues that had arised during the workshop and to identify knowledge  gaps and future directionsIt features the issue that arose most in the group discussions: the need for new skills to enter the field. Also, it covers the possible future directions for the project.
