About this talk

We are pleased to inform you that ‘Cha-Time with SEACHA’ talk series has launched a new episode under the theme of ‘Cooling the Earth with Cultural Wisdom’

This episode will start with the topic of ‘Heritage Place DNA: Holistic Approach for Sustainable Conservation of Culture and Nature’, delivered by Supitcha Sutthanonkul on Saturday, 29 April 2023 at 14:00 (GMT+7, Bangkok time). 

All heritage places are composed of nature-culture that makes them identical and special to the people with their values. The culture embedded for generations contains the code or the DNA of the place, telling us the condition of the land and the nature of that heritage place.

Understanding your heritage place’s DNA will tell you the condition of the place, the meaning of your ancestor’s wisdom and knowledge, and how you can apply it in future actions to strengthen resilience and adaptive capacity to possible change. Holistic conservation is needed to archive a sustainable direction for future development. The gap in consideration of nature, culture, and inclusion of people in the whole context for the conservation led to the decay of attributes and the loss of heritage, especially in Southeast Asia, which contains a deep connection between people, their culture, and nature.  

Speaker invites you to learn more about heritage places’ DNA, find the key values, and take part in saving our heritage together!
