The event coincides with the celebration of the 25th anniversary of the Office of the Historian of the City of Camagüey (OHCC), an entity sponsoring it and one of the referents in the network of such institutions in the country.

“The incredible and diverse problems of handling localities, the need for inclusion and the assimilation of modernity are among the main challenges for specialists,” said OHCC director Jose Rodriguez.

“Our models require a holistic look. That is how the perspective of the Network of Historian’s Offices evolves,” the researcher insisted.

For his part, University of Barcelona professor Jordi Tresserras talked about the perspectives of Agenda 2030 for the objectives of a sustainable world plan in his lecture Heritage cities and local and community development.

“I arrived in Cuba in 1991 and met Havana Historian Eusebio Leal (1942-2020), who taught me to see beyond architecture and understand heritage as its people, with soul and life,” he said.

For the representative in Spain of the International Council on Monuments (Icomos), “the projects endorsed by Unesco are aimed at providing opportunities in that urban agenda and Cuba is very adjusted to its economic and social model”.

For the director of the Laboratory of Heritage, Tourism, Culture and Creativity, “creating opportunities saves lives and that is the most important goal”.
