From December 16 to 18, the 2022 Asia-Pacific Training on Conservation and Restoration Techniques of Ancient Buildings for Advanced Talents organized by the UNESCO World Heritage Institute of Training and Research for the Asia and the Pacific Region Suzhou Centre in cooperation with the School of Architecture of Southeast University, was successfully accomplished.

The theme of the training was heritage and internationalization. 2022 is the 50th anniversary of the UNESCO Convention for the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, and the 40th anniversary of the promulgation of the Law of the People's Republic of China on the Protection of Cultural Relics and the establishment of the protection system for historic and cultural cities in China. Since its accession to the Convention in 1985, China has gained world-recognized "Chinese experience" in the field of heritage conservation and utilization, and some heritage projects have been transformed from a single cultural resource into a composite resource integrating "culture-society-economy", promoting the coordinated and sustainable development of economy, society and ecological environment.

During the course, experts and professors from UNESCO China, ICCROM, Tsinghua University, Southeast University, Tongji University, Shenzhen University, China Academy of Urban Planning and Design, Beijing Tsinghua Tongheng Institute of Planning and Design, National Institute of Urban Affairs of India, Korea National University of Culture Heritage and other regional institutions who were engaged in heritage conservation work, focused on how to effectively realize heritage conservation and promote local sustainable development in the new era and context. 270 participants registered and attended the training.

This online training was divided into two phases. In the first phase, participants registered on the home page of the Asia-Pacific World Heritage website and watched the training videos. In the second phase, online live communication was conducted, inviting experts and scholars, officials of international governmental organizations, local government officials and relevant staff in the field to interact with the participants. Through innovative initiatives such as online registration, independent viewing, backstage review and online certificate generation, the operation process was simplified, making the training course more flexible and wider and avoiding the gathering of people during the epidemic, which was well-received by the participants.
