Side Events at the WCCB

World Heritage and Aerospace History
German Commission for UNESCO and German Aerospace Center (DLR)
The German Commission for UNESCO, the German Aerospace Centre and UNESCO organise a Side Event on “World Heritage and Aerospace History”.  So far, there are no sites representative of the history of aviation and/or astronautics on the World Heritage list, but there have been several preliminary discussions and first ideas. Sites of aerospace history symbolize new dimensions for humanity, in understanding the globe as a joint home of humanity, in technological aspiration, in overcoming traditional limitations of mankind, and in intercultural dialogue. Its innovations have been made in a transnational process and involve leaving the Earth’s surface. But there are also serious challenges. The side event will present an overview of the current debates.
