Welcome to the second newsletter for the 17th International Conference of National Trusts (ICNT 2017). In this newsletter, we provide you with an introduction to Bali and the Gianyar Regency. We are also excited to share exclusive previews of keynote speaker candidates, venues and post conference optional tours. ICNT 2017 offers a platform to share experiences, both scientific and practical, on conservation towards a sustainable environment. The conference expects to bring together 200 + delegates active in the heritage field across the world. Together, we will explore the connection between our cultural traditions and concerns for sustainable development.
