ISC20C INTRODUCTION

The International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) works through its International Scientific Committee on Twentieth-century heritage (ISC20C) to promote the identification, conservation and presentation of Twentieth-century heritage places. The committee is multidisciplinary. It encourages younger members to participate in specific projects and works in partnerships with relevant regional and international organisations such as UAI, TICCIH and Docomomo. ICOMOS is an international conservation non-government organisation of conservation professionals which acts as UNESCO's adviser on cultural heritage and the World Heritage Convention. Through its 90 national committees and 28 International Scientific Committees, ICOMOS can engage a wide range of participants in the promotion and protection of the heritage places of the Twentieth-century. ISC200C considers that it is the mid to late Twentieth-century places that are most at risk, through lack of recognition, conservation and celebration and co-ordinates a range of projects, conferences, declarations and publications to address these issues.
