Technical Service Members | PUP Global Heritage Consortium

Technical Service Members

The PUP Consortium is a membership organization consisting of people and organizations dedicated to introducing emerging paradigms into the natural and cultural heritage management and planning field. It consists of directors, technical service members, advisors, country representatives, and general members. General members live around the world but share a desire to help us transform the dominant paradigm that leads so many development projects and management plans to failure. We are people who think outside the box and love heritage.

According to the PUP Consortium’s strategy of complementarity, its membership should have expertise in a variety of knowledge and skill sets related to heritage area management and consistent with our three focus areas. The sum of these is our knowledge pool. We strive to avoid internal competition by assigning skills or knowledge sets as well as particular programs to each member. Technical Service Members are organizations or individuals who offer a complementary knowledge or skill set. As such when the PUP Consortium has a consultation about the TSM’s area or requires its area in a project, the TSM is the go-to organization or person. They participate directly in projects.
