Happy World Heritage Day 2022!
The International Day for Monuments and Sites (World Heritage Day) was proposed by ICOMOS on April 18th 1982 and followed by UNESCO adoption during its 22nd General Conference in 1983.
The aim for the day is to promote awareness about the diversity of cultural heritage of humanity, their vulnerability and the efforts required for their protection and conservation.
World Heritage brings together exceptional cultural sites that belong to all humankind and here in the UK we have 33 wonderful and diverse sites. To learn more about our sites in the UK the new World Heritage in the UK map 2022 can be downloaded here.
