Heritage, Tourism and Water

“Heritage, Tourism and Water” will be an important HTHIC2017 theme. Finland is an ideal location to discuss the protection of water resources and natural heritage and the development (or not) of tourism, the preservation of (drinking) water related cultural heritage and the management of cultural heritage in marine and fluvial landscapes.
