The Theme on Culture, Spirituality and Conservation (CSC) focuses on increasing understanding of the relationships between culture, biocultural heritage, spirituality and equitable governance in conservation, sustainable development, and environmental and cultural policy.

The theme will provide technical advice on evolving norms, policies and the implementation of the World Heritage Convention and other protection efforts, as well as assessments of proposed natural heritage sites, mixed natural and cultural sites, or cultural landscapes with attention to the rights and livelihoods of Indigenous peoples and local communities. 

The theme will also explore themes of spirituality, scared and cultural sites and faith based movements related to conservation and climate change through specialist groups or topic specific taskforces or working groups.
