The essence of heritage lies in using the past for the contemporary purposes. Heritage directly and indirectly influences socio-economic development. Although widely attempted, there is no universal model for success of heritage-led development projects. It might happen that such a project fails as aside the benefits there are costs to be born as well. The lessons are to be learned from practice but they are the lessons of careful management not the lessons of automatic imitation of successful projects already implemented somewhere else.

Admission free, a lecture in English with simultaneous translation into Polish.
