Our heritage is rooted in local cultures and environments, yet the international bias of modern communication may threaten to degrade this inheritance. Is it possible to accommodate multinational companies and mass tourism, or to export concepts such as Disney World from one place to another without destroying valued vernacular traditions? This column addresses these questions and explores issues critical to the sustained use of the Earthís heritage for the cultural and economic benefit of local communities.
