PLAN4CURE implements the inclusion of heritage into planning policy, as an way of sustainable development of urban and rural sites. As an embodiment of cultural resilience, heritage tackles fast and undirected transformations and reorients policymaking. Four historic sites - Marienburg, Frimangron, Paramaribo UNESCO-site, and Moengo - representing the diversity of Surinames urban and rural heritage (a plantation site, city centre, peripheral neighbourhood, and a mining town), serve as empirical pilot cases.
Through these cases the applicability of knowledge and methodologies resulting from previous research, will be valorised. Meanwhile training programs and educational strengthening are addressing the many and diverse stakeholders which are involved: heritage organisations, academics, students, and professionals.
