    Protecting multiple heritage values related to an object
    1) PROTECTING MULTIPLE HERITAGE VALUES RELATED TO AN OBJECT Adaptive reuse practices expand the concept of “authenticity and integrity” of heritage objects to a variety of heritage values which include together “materials and substance, use and function, tradition and techniques, location and setting, spirts and feeling and other internal or external factors” (Nara document on Authenticity 1994). Hence, the protection of these values implies a shift from the heritage as thing approach to heritage as an ongoing process (Knippenberg 2019). Although the variety of aspects to be considered might create conflicts along the adaptation process (e.g. community needs vs compatible use, continuous access vs physical preservation, etc.) the equal care of -often- opposite elements foster the understanding and integration of existing heritage status, values and conditions into the protecting process, providing the reasons for all proposed interventions (ICOMS 2019). By protecting multiple heritage values as something in flux and adaptable to an ever-changing present (Harrison 2013, Högberg 2016), it acknowledges the need for an ongoing maintenance, participated by local communities and supported by dynamic approaches to respectful and compatible adaptive reuse and management (ICOMS 2019). - Harrison, Rodnay. 2013.

    Enabling Heritage Re-use
    Heritage re-use is a tool to link the past to the future. Heritage re-use support local identity and creates material and immaterial value for society. Society should enable heritage re-use for a wide range of share- and stakeholders. It should become a common place that not only heritage professionals and real-estate developers know how to play the game, but broaden the inner-circle of heritage re-developers to communities, individuals and non-profit organisations in order to spread and keep the wider benefits over society as a whole. Public authorities play an important role in enabling heritage re-use. Through subsidies, facilities and regulations it can enable wider societal involvement and benefits.

    Technology
    Connecting online is a prerequisite for healthy economies, heritage reuse and place making in the 21st century and was even proposed as a human right at the UN in 2011. However, a challenge is creating more equitable and accessible standards of internet connection. Technology at it's best supports infrastructures of communities and networks to create more accessible places online to connect.

    Access
    'There is no heritage without accessibility, since there is no heritage without community. The community can be large or small, on-site or virtual, and access can mean a variety of ways of entering the heritage process; and all these change in time. Heritage is created via interaction between the human and tangible or intangible assets from the past, as well as between human and human through the assets, by attributing value to these assets. Everyone should have a potential access to benefitting from and contributing to their heritage, even if they choose not to access it at the moment.'

    Organising
    Organising should be open and accessible to each individual or group within a participatory process, project, or space. OpenHeritage demonstrates the importance to consider multiple contexts and needs when collaborating or co-creating together on and offline.
