As the urbanization progresses and the post-industrialization accelerates, the diversity of the regions and its unique cultures are cultural properties for the city's competitiveness. The concept of cultural heritages and resources have expanded in these days. In the past it was confined as architectural and artistic artifacts, now cultural heritages and resources have evolved to include environmental elements, industrial and vernacular constructions, urban and rural settlements and intangible elements related to community activities and their ways of life.
Community is the carriers of cultural resources and heritages. And the places of the cultural heritages have been contributed to build the community’s identities. This multi-layered discussion on the community engagements in cultural heritages and resources provide the unique approach for the cultural properties as sustainability enablers.
