    Water and the city: Valorising Guimarães water heritage for tourism
    2020 - Freitas, Isabel Vaz de; Ramazanova, Makhabbat
    Water is the most important natural source of human existence and the main element of the socio-economic development of any industry. Water is an essential in meaningful experience of the visitors, who have an internal relation with this touristic resource as an attraction. As a cultural resource is associated with symbolic and artistic meanings. In urban areas where water is often ignored and its heritage elements are underestimated, the valorisation of its heritage elements and natural state is essential to create a safeguard and protection attitude towards this vital asset of life. To value is to recognise importance, to understand significance, to act towards conservation in both natural and cultural angles, particularly in cities where the conservation of water resources is critical and ignored in an urban development process. In this perspective, the present study attempts to analyse the water heritage state in the historical city Guimarães with the aim to valorise the water heritage resources linked to traditions and local historical narratives. Giving significance to those historical assets, aims to promote sustainable use and sustainable visit development. In this context, it is important to understand the residents’ view about the water presence in Guimarães, to understand the local opinion about the valorisation of water heritage for tourism and to understand what could the city do in conservation and the implementation of sustainable attitude related with this vital resource.

    2020-09 - Beisenova, Raikha; Saspugayeva, Gulnur; Zhamangara, Aizhan; Tulebekova, Assel; Ramazanova, Makhabbat
    Ecological and geographical map that characterizes the introduction and storage in the natural or built environment of physical, chemical, and biological substances in concentrations exceeding the natural (background) values and adversely affecting human health, fauna, flora, and other components of the environment. Maps may reflect contamination of the earth, atmosphere, surface water and groundwater, soils, vegetation, wildlife, and others. They show the sources of pollution (solid waste, air emissions of gases and aerosols, drains and diversion of utilities and others), pollution factors (impact of power plants, transportation, industrial production, animal husbandry, and so on), distribution of natural and man-made pollutants (mechanical, physical, chemical, biological), and others. The levels of pollution often characterize the performance of exceeding the maximum permissible concentration (MPC), the maximum permissible emissions (MPE), and other regulations.

    Feeling a historic city: Porto landscape through the eyes of residents and visitors
    2021-10 - Sousa, Cristina; Albuquerque, Helena; Freitas, Isabel Vaz de; Ramazanova, Makhabbat
    Purpose – This paper aims to monitor the urban landscape through the perceptions of residents and visitors, identifying features that cause visual impacts and providing insights for landscape management decision-makers. Captured impressions about the city whilst moving around are important to assess the satisfaction of city residents and city visitors through key elements, such as directional signage, outdoor advertising, restaurants’ outdoor terrace furniture, urban furniture, green spaces, traffic, cleaning, pedestrian areas, visitor flow and conservation of monuments,museums and buildings. Design/methodology/approach – A survey was applied in the historical Porto city centre (Portugal) to understand residents’ and visitors’ perceptions of the city landscape and assess the differences between these two groups. Cronbach’s alpha was used to assess the reliability of the constructs (dimensions) of urban landscape. Non-parametric Mann-Whitney test was used to find significant differences in the perceptions of residents and visitors. Findings – The results suggest significant differences in the perceptions. Residents value more two constructs of the landscape (heritage conservation and transport mobility) whilst visitors value more other two (pedestrian mobility and aesthetic quality). It is showed that residents have a strong sense of place and are concerned with the conservation of historical heritage. Visitors are more concerned with dimensions intrinsically related to tourism. Originality/value – This research allowed to fill a gap found in the literature, namely, the importance of considering the perceptions of different actors in the urban landscape monitoring. These results are an important contribution for local authorities to understand the value of urban landscape elements from the perspective of residents and visitors. This study opened the possibility of comparing the results from different historical cities centres.

    The role of social media in the conservation and safeguard of gastronomy as intangible cultural heritage
    2024-03-02 - Ramazanova, Makhabbat; Freitas, Isabel Vaz de; Cardoso, Raquel Santos
    Since 2003, when UNESCO launched the Convention for the Safeguarding of Intangible Cultural Heritage (ICH) and gastronomy was included in the World Heritage List as ICH in 2016, the importance of this topic has increased. However, globalization and the mixing of different cultures means that gastronomy as a heritage and related cultural traditions may be lost, requiring urgent action toward its preservation. Nowadays, social media platforms and their importance in today’s society in various fields can be a useful tool in protecting intangible cultural heritage through its dissemination. This study was carried out in the framework of the EURICA project aimed at preserving ritual cuisine as a manifestation of heritage and folklore, making it easily accessible and usable through digitising ritual recipes. In this context, this study aims to identify and analyze already existing international platforms and networks related to gastronomy as cultural heritage, as well as the presence of these platforms in social media. As a result, three international platforms related to the theme of gastronomy as heritage were found and analyzed in terms of their amplitude and spread in social media. It has been found that many countries in different parts of the world have, relatively recently, shown a trend toward preserving their cuisine as a cultural heritage.
