What is GO-HUL?
The Global Observatory on the Historic Urban Landscape (GO-HUL) is a global effort to unite and foster the cooperation between the communities worldwide, who dedicate their work to the field of resources management in urban contexts, and heritage resources in particular, throughout time and place.
Cities may be unique as a whole, but they all seek sustainable development, for maximizing resources and mastering the challenges of dynamic and evolving environments. Technology today allows cities to share experiences and co-create solutions to raise resource efficiency, product of effective practices, methods and tools.
What GO-HUL aims for?
GO-HUL enables communities to share resources, activities and outcomes. The more you share, the more you can learn from each other’s work and improve your own. Though, when co-creating activities, methodologies and tools, we can also contribute to a more periodical reporting and global analysis, comparing regions, countries and cities worldwide.
How does GO-HUL relates to the HUL Recommendation?
The Recommendation on the Historic Urban Landscape (HUL Recommendation) was adopted on 10 November 2011 by the UNESCO General Assembly. GO-HUL puts the HUL Recommendation into perspective, framing it within the evolution of policies, theories, practices and outcomes; so that we all can better understand and further optimize its footprint.
