Our UNESCO World  Heritage Site was given a reprieve at the World Heritage Committee meeting in Bahrain and now Engage wants to explore how we can make the most of this exceptional listing as Liverpool Maritime Mercantile City – unique among all the port cities of the world and a precious gift for the whole of humanity. This 2018 seminar series brings 3 major European WHS cities who have been working with their UNESCO status to promote economic and social regeneration, improved design and planning, increased tourism, significant cultural engagement and local pride.
