Agrarian Landscapes, the Environment and World Heritage: Why our region should apply for World Heritage Status

1,351

Published on

Professor Randy Stringer presents the third instalment of the Science Seminar Series at 1.10pm Friday 21 August. The Seminar entitled “Agrarian Landscapes, the Environment and World Heritage: Why our region should apply for World Heritage Status.”

World Heritage Sites bring economic, social and cultural benefits to their communities. Along with global prestige comes increased investment, new business opportunities and potential ‘reputation premiums’ for local products. So, too, does an enhanced sense of local pride, place and identity. Only a handful of the 890 listed sites focus on agricultural landscapes; only a of few of those are ‘working agrarian landscapes’. The mosaic of agrarian landscapes, from the Fleurieu Peninsula to the Clare Valley, should apply for World Heritage status as this is an outstanding example of distinctive land use on a rare agro-ecosystem under threat of irreversible change.
