Te ideas and opinions expressed in this report are those of the authors; they are not necessarily those of UNESCO and do not commit the Orga-nization. Tis report was first published on 󰀱 October 󰀱. UNESCO Chair on Heritage FuturesSince 󰀱, Linnaeus University in Kalmar, Sweden, has been hosting a UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures. Heritage futures are concerned with the roles of heritage in managing the relations between present and future societies, e.g. through anticipation or planning. Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair, and his team continue to promote future-thinking in the heritage sector and work with heritage practitioners in developing their own professional strategies for the future. Among the tasks of the Chair are academic research on heritage futures, international collaborations in a UNESCO context, and the development of training courses for heritage professionals.  Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM)Founded in 󰀱, the research institute and doctoral school is committed to the analysis of the remnants and narratives of the past in the present and the remaking of pasts into heritage, memory and material culture.  AHM seeks to integrate all branches of research focusing on the material and intangible remains of the past, the reciprocal relations between objects and meanings, and the dynamics of memory, from diverse theoretical and methodological perspectives, concept-oriented, object-oriented and user-oriented approaches.   he ICOMOS University ForumOriginally instigated in 󰀱, the ICOMOS University Forum aims at mobilising more academics based at universities to get involved in the work of the global cultural heritage community that is the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS). Te University Forum has been meeting in small meetings  with a well-defined focus, each time bringing together - university researchers and heritage practitio-ners from around the world and representing different disciplines and levels of experience to discuss issues of mutual interest and intellectually explore key questions for cultural heritage. Te University Forum in  Amsterdam was the second meeting.     ICOMOS University Forum, Amsterdam 󰀱 Content Introduction....................................................................................................................................................................  Te Conference.............................................................................................................................................................. Opening Day................................................................................................................................................... Presentation Day..............................................................................................................................................  Workshop Day................................................................................................................................................󰀱 Bill Wei - Socratic Dialgue.............................................................................................................󰀱 Kate Clark - Heritage Values..........................................................................................................󰀱 Laura Watts - ‘Heritage End.’.........................................................................................................󰀱 Concluding Day..............................................................................................................................................󰀱Concluding remarks.......................................................................................................................................................󰀱Conference feedback......................................................................................................................................................󰀱Conference Organizers and Scientific Committee.....................................................................................................󰀱  Appendices󰀱.

Te Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture (AHM) of the University of Amsterdam (UvA) hosted the meeting, which aimed at promoting thinking and planning the future in heritage management. Te main questions that were discussed during the meeting were:• How do we perceive of the future?• Which future and future generations do heritage professionals work for?• What heritage will be needed in the future (and how do we know)?• How can we build capacity in future thinking among heritage professionals worldwide? Participants  Te conference participants included scholars and heritage managers, both young and established, from diffe-rent parts of the world. Tey had in parts been personally invited and in parts sent in applications for participa-tion and travel grants in response to a call issued widely to ICOMOS members and others. By mid-February 󰀱, the organizers had received almost 󰀱 applications from all over the world. Te Scientific Committee selected  emerging ICOMOS members and  full ICOMOS members to attend the meeting, in addition to those who had already been invited. All in all, the ICOMOS University Forum brought together about  global heritage specialists from academia and professional practice, representing not only many European countries but also Australia, Brazil, China, India, Korea, Mexico, Nigeria, Singapore, Syria, Tailand, unisia, urkey and the USA. During the meeting, participants enriched the discussion with their multicultural and multidisciplinary expertise. oshiyuki Kono, President of ICOMOS and Cornelius Holtorf, holder of the UNESCO Chair in Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University in Sweden, joining for discussion in Amsterdam.

Te meeting also aimed at inspiring everybody to think further, drawing on several innovative discussion-oriented  workshops. Te specific goal of the University Forum was to contribute to building capacity and for participants to gain a form of literacy in future thinking: ‘futures literacy’. Tis meant that the main emphasis in the programme was not on lectures and extensive formal presentations but on discussion facilitated in different ways and by the encouragement of listening, understanding and the participants’ own thinking on issues relevant to thinking and planning the future in heritage management. For that reason, the number of participants had to be restricted.Over the coming years, the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures will build on the experiences from  Amsterdam and develop training material and courses on heritage futures for the global heritage sector. Social media  Te organizing committee aimed to spread knowledge of the meeting and publicize the content of the discussions by utilizing social media platforms such as witter. We used the following hashtag: 󰀣HeritageFuturesAmsterdam @UnescoChairLNUMany participants were active on social media. Te public response on witter was however lower than expected, and did not end up in much academic tweeting. Nevertheless, the social media platforms, e.g. Facebook, witter and Instagram, helped the participants communicate and network among each other during and after the meeting. Te activity on social media also raised public awareness of the event and the questions discussed.
