Forbes Prize Lecture
The Forbes Prize Lecture has been delivered at every IIC Congress since the Rome Congress in 1961. It is delivered by a person who has made an outstanding contribution to the field of conservation; the first Forbes Prize lecture was given by Harold Plenderleith.
Recent Forbes Prize Lecturers include Stefan Michalski (Turin, 2018), Carol Mancusi-Ungaro (Los Angeles, 2016), Dr. Jixiang Shan (Hong Kong, 2014), Manfred Koller (Vienna 2012) and David Lowenthal (Istanbul, 2010). The full list of recipients can be read online here and some of the lectures are available to watch online or are available for download; we are in the process of digitising some of these lectures so they can be viewed at the IIC web-site.
We are pleased to announce Norman Tennent as the 2020 Forbes Prize lecturer for the IIC 28th biennial Congress.
