THE possibility of making the Channel Islands a World Heritage Site was discussed at the Island’s first Council For Culture Conference on Saturday.
The all-day event, attended by around 90 Islanders, was held at Hautlieu School and included speeches by two experts from the UK, Professor John Holden and Dr Kate Clark.
Those who attended the conference also heard from the heads of a number of cultural organisations from within the Island and discussed in groups their views on the subject.
Introducing the event, Education Minister Mike Vibert said that it had come about following the States’ approval of a Cultural Strategy in 2005, with the aim of giving cultural organisations in the Island the chance to work more closely with the States.
