Incorporating the Asia & West Pacific Network
for Urban Conservation (AWPNUC)

'Lestari' is an Indonesian/Malay word denoting 'to continue, preserve and revitalize'. Established in 2004, Lestari Heritage Network continues the work of the Asia & West Pacific Network for Urban Conservation (AWPNUC).

We promote
Heritage as community resources.
Historic areas as arenas for cultural and civic life.
Trans-local, inter-cultural shared heritage.
The importance of local knowledge, folklore and social memory.
Cultural approaches to environment, ethics and peace.

What we can do
• Support local initiatives by providing networking opportunities
and links with international expertise.
• Organise exchange programmes for people in the fields of culture,
heritage and environment.
