Welcome we are ICOMOS ISC TWENTIETH CENTURY HERITAGE

English:
ISC20C is inter-disciplinary in its membership and recognizes the diversity of regional and cultural expression in twentieth-century heritage. The ISC20C welcomes expert, associate, emerging professional and institutional members.
The ICOMOS Twentieth Century Heritage International Scientific Committee focuses its efforts on conserving and celebrating mid to late twentieth-century places that are most at risk through lack of recognition and protection.
The committee co-ordinates a range of projects, conferences, declarations, and publications to address these issues. The Heritage Alerts program is a key advocacy project through which ISC20C raises international public consciousness about specific sites under threat.
The committee members form a permanent international and inter-disciplinary group representing various specializations and research themes particular to the heritage places of the Twentieth Century. We facilitate international and regional collaboration through projects such as the Socialist Heritage initiative and the mASEANa project; and actively disseminate current knowledge in the field through the ongoing development of our ISC20C Heritage Toolkit. Annual meetings and conferences identify current and forthcoming issues for ISC20C engagement. We actively use social media platforms as a forum for discussion and exchange of information and conservation initiatives.
In 2017, the committee finalised the international standard: Approaches for the Conservation of the Twentieth Century Heritage (known as the Madrid-New Delhi Document) which was endorsed for international promotion by the ICOMOS General Assembly in Delhi.
ISC20C is active in providing advice within ICOMOS and externally about world heritage listing and management of modern heritage places.
The committee works in partnership with relevant regional and international organisations with an interest in Twentieth Century Heritage such as UAI, TICCIH, ICCROM, mAAN, and Docomomo.
By promoting and celebrating the values of the heritage places of the Twentieth Century and its creators, ISC20C aims to lead, support and sustain its conservation, management and interpretation.
We take a broad view of what constitutes twentieth-century heritage places by including in our work buildings, structures, urban ensembles and city plans, cultural landscapes, industrial and historic archaeology, tangible and intangible heritage.

Le Comité scientifique international de l’ICOMOS sur le patrimoine du XXe siècle concentre ses efforts sur la conservation et la valorisation des endroits datant du milieu à la fin du vingtième siècle qui sont le plus à risques suite à leur manque de notoriété et de protection.
Le Comité coordonne une série de projets, conférences, déclarations et publications pour résoudre ces problèmes. Le programme d’alertes du patrimoine est un projet clé par lequel l’ISC20C soulève la conscience publique internationale sur des sites spécifiques, menacés chaque année.
Les membres du Comité forment un groupe international permanent et interdisciplinaire représentant diverses spécialités et thèmes de recherche propres aux sites patrimoniaux du XXe siècle. Nous facilitons la collaboration internationale et régionale à travers des projets tels que l’initiative Réalisme socialiste et le projet mASEANa; Et diffusons activement les connaissances actuelles sur le terrain grâce au développement continu de notre Référentiel Patrimonial. Les réunions annuelles et les conférences identifient les enjeux actuels et à venir pour l’engagement de l’ISC20C. Nous utilisons activement les plateformes de médias sociaux comme un forum de discussion et d’échange d’informations et d’initiatives de conservation.
En 2014, le Comité a finalisé la norme internationale : Approches pour la conservation du patrimoine architectural du XXe siècle (connu sous le nom de Document de Madrid-New Delhi) qui s’étend actuellement aux zones urbaines et aux paysages, a approuvé pour l’Assemblée générale à Delhi en 2017.
L’ISC20C est actif dans l’apport de conseils au sein de l’ICOMOS et à l’extérieur concernant la liste du patrimoine mondial et la gestion des lieux patrimoniaux modernes.
Le Comité travaille en partenariat avec des organisations régionales et internationales compétentes intéressées par le patrimoine du vingtième siècle, telles que l’UAI, le TICCIH, l’ICCROM, le mAAN et Docomomo.
En promouvant et célébrant les valeurs des lieux patrimoniaux du XXe siècle et de ses créateurs, ISC20C vise à diriger, soutenir et maintenir sa conservation, sa gestion et son interprétation. Nous avons une vue large de ce qui constitue des lieux patrimoniaux du XXe siècle en incluant dans nos travaux des bâtiments, des structures, des ensembles urbains et des plans de villes, des paysages culturels, de l’archéologie industrielle et historique, du patrimoine matériel et immatériel.
