The tool has been developed to discuss and analyse the different dimensions of sustainable development in relation to living heritage in a practical way. The Wheel Chart of sustainability and intangible cultural heritage is also part of the UNESCO Convention on the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in Finland.
The four dimensions of sustainable development (ecological, economic, social, and cultural) have been divided into eight categories of questions (economic equity, role of economics, ecology, nature, continuity, ownership, accessibility, interaction) that are interconnected. In the wheel chart you will find 24 questions to help to analyse and develop the current situation.
1. Chose a living heritage phenomenon or activity 2. Look at the topics on the outer sleeve 3. Chose a topic and explore the questions. 4. Explore the topics.
The Wheel Chart was developed for and tested at the seminar “Living Heritage in the Nordic countries” held in Finland November 2019. The World Saving Clinic had 50 participants testing and further developing the tool. The wheel chart has been developed as a part of the project of the Northern Dimension Partnership on Culture: “Creating new practises of sustainability - Cross-sectorial creativity in the era of climate change”. The project is a creative response for supporting sustainable development by using art and culture as activators for developing the social discourse in an eco-social, economic and cultural direction.
