Cultural heritages/cities around the world facing severe risks of collapse or disappearance caused by global-scale environmental destruction and our human activities. Increasing interests within last decades to global environment has contributed to awaken our sense of crisis on environmental changes and fostered understanding an importance of taking effective and immediate actions for conserving our cultural heritages.

Growing attentions to conserving cultural heritages, however, the "tangible" actions at the civilian level is still in fragile. Bridging gaps between environmental awareness and behavior is now become one of the most important topics for planners, architects, sociologists, psychologists, geographers, engineers and other experts on the conservation and revitalization of historical heritages.

The 3rd international collaborative workshop which will be held at Trieste, Italy is intended to combine the point of view of planners, designers and other experts on the conservation and revitalization of historical heritages from all over the world. Themes of the laboratories are: earthquake and flooding and their mitigation in urban cultural heritages under that risks.

Participants are involved in lectures, meetings with local population and field survey. At the end they will propose projects and gaming simulations developed under the guidance of the experts. All the results will care how to bridge gaps with our environmental awareness and behavior. Withal the meeting and the workshop serve the purpose to train young researchers, involved in the organization, to learn by doing principles and practices in Urban Design and Planning Education.
