From preservation to revitalization: When citizens get involved
Built and urban heritage is everyone’s business. It is part of our daily lives, our neighbourhoods and our identity. Citizens have long played a watchdog role, mobilizing and gathering to defend endangered buildings and sites. Today, this commitment seems to be evolving towards a willingness not only to safeguard heritage, but to reclaim it and participate in discussions about its future.
How has citizen action regarding heritage changed over time? What are the current challenges of civic engagement? How can it be valued and included in revitalization projects?
- Nathacha Alexandroff, engaged citizen and Vice-Chair of the Société d’histoire de Pointe-Saint-Charles
- Martin Drouin, professor, Department of Urban Studies and Tourism, ESG UQAM
- Maya Vodanovich, Lachine borough mayor
