International Heritage Camp 2018 in India

The World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) campaign: Heritage in our hands will take stock of the progress made over the past ten years to mobilize youth to preserve and promote World Heritage by reaching out to their peers and their communities.

Over the past ten years, the World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) Initiative has tremendously grown due to the increasing interest and appreciation for the protection and preservation of World Heritage sites. In the year of its 10th anniversary, 51 youth action projects will be implemented at 50 World Heritage properties and sites inscribed on the Tentative Lists, from May through November 2017, by 46 organizations in 32 countries.

The International Heritage Camp will enable volunteers to acquire basic preservation and conservation skills and to engage in intercultural exchanges with local communities while being involved in World Heritage preservation and promotion.
