Abstract [en]

The future is an important new topic for archaeology. Archaeologists do not only study past futures but are also concerned with future pasts and in particular with the impact of their work on future societies. Drawing on the notion of “heritage futures”, archaeological heritage is claimed to contribute to sustainable development and address challenges posed by climate change, human conflicts, and others.

Abstract [de]

Es ist ein grundlegendes Paradox unserer Zeit, dass Kultur und Kulturerbe oft von Prinzipien der Kontinuität und des Erhaltens ausgehen, während die globalen Herausforderungen unserer Zeit, die im Zusammenhang mit unzureichender Nachhaltigkeit gesehen werden, ausgerechnet eine Bereitschaft zu Veränderung, Anpassung und Umwandlung erfordern. Dieses Spannungsfeld berührt grundlegende Aspekte unseres Zusammenlebens und ist in seinen Konsequenzen politisch kontrovers. Bei der Diskussion über Nachhaltigkeit geht es daher oft um Lösungen für die allgemeine Gesellschaft, wobei aber die Bedürfnisse und Meinungen der Einzelpersonen häufig vernachlässigt werden. Dieses Paradox liegt den meist hitzigen Diskussionen über Nachhaltigkeit zugrunde, in denen die Teilnehmenden einander nicht mehr zuhören und verstehen wollen. Einander zu verstehen und unterschiedliche Meinungen zu begreifen, ist aber eine der wichtigsten Voraussetzungen, um große gesellschaftliche Probleme zu lösen.

Abstract [en]

The SARS-CoV-2 pandemic has been presenting stakeholders in the visitor economy with an unprecedented level of uncertainty. Sweden’s approach to handling the pandemic, which is viewed as an international exception, and Småland and Öland with its focus on limited-season summer tourism provide an exceptional context to study how key stakeholders deal with relevant challenges from a decision-making perspective, promising insights beyond the immediate study context.

The pandemic has been and still is a chance to (re-)engage with the development trajectories of tourism in this area and what kind of futures various local stakeholders envision for it. To this end, it is valuable to evaluate the impact and response to Covid-19 in relation to developing the local UNESCO World Heritage site and to achieving the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development.

The interdisciplinary research project documented in this report sought to study how stakeholders in the visitor economy make sense of the uncertainty induced by the current SARS-CoV-2 pandemic in the short- and long-run through different lenses. To this end, we studied how stakeholders in the visitor economy reflected on their decisions to deal with the immediate implications of pandemic tourism and plan to engage them in a forward-looking process of scenario development and action-learning to open horizons that envision the present crisis as a chance to work towards a more sustainable future.

The project results address aspects of how the visitor economy in Småland can deal both with the present uncertainty and future crises of a similar nature. In the short-run, we identified how stakeholders in the local visitor economy made sense of the uncertainty of visitor business during the pandemic. This provides points of reflection for the stakeholders involved and suggestions for policy considerations to support the visitor economy for the future. For the long-run, we enhanced futures thinking and discussed development perspectives with stakeholders in the local visitor economy. This is a necessary input to inspiring strategies towards sustainable development beyond the immediate necessities of the present.

Abstract [en]

This report covers the sixth year of the UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University. Among the highlights of the year were several global initiatives which our Chair could influence with its distinctive perspective on heritage futures that becomes ever better known. This included the UNESCO World Conference on Cultural Policies and Sustainable Development MONDIACULT 2022 in Mexico City at the end of September. The conference established the significance of culture as a global public good and called for the inclusion of culture as a stand-along goal in the post-2030 international development agenda. One of the key contributions of futures thinking to global cultural policy is the notion of temporal interculturality, i. e. the mutability of culture and cultures over time, which was the topic of a panel I chaired at the Association of Critical Heritage Studies conference at Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile in Santiago de Chile in December 2023. The potential of cultural heritage for addressing the future challenges of climate change was addressed in an expert workshop to which I was invited at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK, at the end of March 2024. During the subsequent months, I was writing up my ideas about the "Climate Heritage Paradox"—using the future for rethinking global heritage management (p.13). A topic that remains significant in our work is memory across generations related to repositories of nuclear waste. In this context, Sarah May co-edited a new volume on Toxic heritage, and Anders Högberg and I published a paper on "Nuclear Waste as Critical Heritage" that in some ways constitutes a conclusion of our decade-long research on these issues. Among the research projects listed below is a range of exciting new empirical research Chair members have been involved in over the past year. There were also several opportunities to meet and collaborate with other UNESCO Chairholders from different corners of the world. These are important occasions as they pave the way for global collaborations in new areas.

UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures
Note

The UNESCO Chair Programme addresses pressing challenges in society. The Chairs serve as think tanks and bridge-builders between the academic world, civil society, local communities, research and policy-making, generating innovation through research, informing policy decisions, and establishing new teaching initiatives. The UNESCO Chair on Heritage Futures at Linnaeus University is one of eight UNESCO Chairs in Sweden and the only one in Sweden in the area of culture. The concept of 'Heritage Futures' stands at the intersection of past legacies and tomorrow's possibilities. How can our present-day conservation practices shape the world of tomorrow? It's not just about safeguarding relics of the past, but about making them resonate in an evolving world full of challenges. How can futures literacy and foresight help us design the heritage of tomorrow? We develop strategies that can enhance how heritage shapes the future and build global capacity for futures thinking among heritage professionals.

Abstract [en]

This chapter proposes that heritage destruction can be seen as a medium and manifestation of dynamic transformation that ultimately allows more sustainable forms of development to emerge, not least when seen in the context of long-term change. Using insights from current debates on heritage futures and examples from cultural history, we argue that Heritage Studies needs a critical and open-minded discussion of the existing and potential effects of cultural heritage in society, potentially even developing a code of not simply conservation but destruction, change, and decay.
