Next Monday is World Heritage Day, a global celebration of this planet’s heritage. It’s all about increasing the awareness of the importance of the diversity of cultural and natural heritage and preserving this heritage for future generations.

Ancient monuments and natural treasures are assets for all around the world. But they need protection to ensure that they continue to be an asset for years and years to come. World Heritage Day is a collective effort of communities around the globe.

World Heritage Day was first established in 1982 by ICOMOS and was followed by UNESCO adoption during its 22nd General Conference. Each year has a theme: ICOMOS’  suggestion for 2022 is “Heritage and Climate”.
