How can cities rich in culture host mega-events without putting their own heritage at risk? How can mega-events become effective ways to promote and protect tangible and intangible heritage? The Charter for Mega-events in Heritage-rich Cities responds to these questions. The Charter consists of 13 key principles which represent its core values and are structured within the four themes: context matters, planning legacies, inclusive governance, communities and identities. These principles are supported by more detailed guidelines and 51 recommendations aimed at policymakers, as well as event organisers, heritage officials and the local community to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by mega-events, without compromising their cultural heritage and local communities. The accompanying snapshots section provides concrete examples of each of the 13 principles, presenting the cases in which they were observed.

Abstract

How can cities rich in culture host mega-events without putting their own heritage at risk? How can mega-events become effective ways to promote and protect tangible and intangible heritage? The Charter for Mega-events in Heritage-rich Cities responds to these questions. The Charter consists of 13 key principles which represent its core values and are structured within the four themes: context matters, planning legacies, inclusive governance, communities and identities. These principles are supported by more detailed guidelines and 51 recommendations aimed at policymakers, as well as event organisers, heritage officials and the local community to take full advantage of the opportunities offered by mega-events, without compromising their cultural heritage and local communities. The accompanying snapshots section provides concrete examples of each of the 13 principles, presenting the cases in which they were observed.
