Launched in 1965, the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) is a professional association that works for the conservation and protection of cultural heritage places around the world.
2020 General Assembly
ICOMOS 20th General Assembly and Scientific Symposium takes place in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia, October 1-10, 2020. Hashtag: #ICOMOSGA2020
The logo for GA2020 features a Xanthorrhoea plant in the shape of the Sydney Opera House. The Xanthorrhoea plant is also known as ‘Gadi’ – the plant name is connected to the Gadigal people, the Traditional Owners of the Country on which GA2020 will take place. The logo neatly encapsulates ‘shared’ natural and cultural heritage.
