ICOMOS-UK Statement on Black Lives Matter Protests

The recent killing of the African American George Floyd has inevitably sparked worldwide protests against racism.

ICOMOS-UK is part of a global ICOMOS network extending to some 120 countries. As part of this international community we work alongside culturally diverse professionals and local people across the globe in a variety of social and economic settings. Our work is underpinned not only by a shared engagement with heritage conservation but also by the ideals of equality, inclusion and social justice.

Here in the UK we aim to ensure that these ideals are reflected in all aspects of our strategic thinking and practice.
