The global field of conservation of immovable cultural heritage (ICH) is undergoing intensive transformation and integration, in order to contribute more effectively to a sustainable future. The transdisciplinary project HEI-TRANSFORM aims to establish the potential for multidimensional contributions from cultural heritage to the green transformation and sustainable future of Slovenia. Our starting point is the understanding of heritage as development capital, which will be defined in the context of the four dimensions of sustainability: cultural, social, economic and environmental. We focus on ICH, including its movable and intangible components, within a spatial context. The research project highlights the need for structural changes within the heritage sector, and identifies these as a long-term objective. The project carries out fundamental research, which is the key basis for future heritage transformation decision-making, in line with current knowledge and the sustainable heritage paradigm. In doing so, it enables conditions to be created for the direct implementation and mainstreaming of ICH as the capital of an inclusive sustainable future in local environments. These are the places where sustainability can be most directly implemented and contribute to global goals. To this end, the project is developing the Cultural Heritage 4.0 (CH 4.0) model for the reactivation of disused and underused ICH through inclusive adaptive re-use.
