World Heritage Education

UNESCO World Heritage Education website:

"The World Heritage Education project was launched in 1994 by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) under the title: Young People's Participation in World Heritage Preservation and Promotion. The Project seeks to encourage and enable tomorrow's decision-makers to participate in heritage conservation locally and globally, and to mobilize youth to respond to the continuing threats facing the survival of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. Through this project youth are taught the meaning and significance of our common heritage, and are given the opportunity to learn about World Heritage sites, the history and traditions of their own and other cultures, ecology, and the importance of protecting biological and cultural diversity. Students learn how nations unite to save heritage cherished by the entire international community. The Project also aims to develop effective educational approaches and teaching materials by creating a synergy among educators and heritage conservation experts in order to incorporate World Heritage education into the secondary school curricula or encourage extra-curricula activities at heritage sites in the community."
