Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Workshop: Intramuros 23 November 2018 (Friday) | 9AM-5PM (Manila City, Philippines)
ICOMOS Philippines and the University of Tokyo Graduate Program in Sustainability Science, in collaboration with the Intramuros Administration, will be holding a Pre-Disaster Recovery Planning Workshop for Intramuros on November 23 (Friday), from 9AM-5PM, at the Casa Blanca in Casa Manila Compound, San Luis Complex, Gen. Luna St., Intramuros, Manila City.
The workshop will be based on a slight amendment from the Ritsumeikan Model, which is currently taught in workshops and is considered to be the best practice of disaster workshops for heritage. Already in Phase 2, this workshop will involve the disaster imagination game for contextualizing the disaster; collaborative focus group discussion with stakeholders; and drafting the policy brief.
The Intramuros would be the second historic district in the Philippines, after Vigan, to have such a plan.
For those interested to join us, kindly send us a message at email@example.com for us to save you a seat.

ICOMOS Philippines was among the partners of the Gawad Kalinga Intramuros project last October 1, 2011 that was launched with 2000 student volunteers from all over the Philippines doing work in Intramuros. They cleaned up debris from last week’s typhoon, painted walls, removed growth from the fortifications and built or repaired sidewalks with concrete pavers. This is the first phase of a long-range project to bring Intramuros into the consciousness of the youth so they will respect their heritage.
ICOMOS members will have the opportunity to be involved in future projects.
ICOMOS Philippines met at Escuela Taller in Intramuros last April 18, 2009 to celebrate the International Day for Monuments and Sites.
