What is World Heritage Volunteers 2022 Campaign
The UNESCO World Heritage Centre has announced the Call for Projects for the World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) Campaign 2022 ‘Resilience and Re-mobilization towards World Heritage’. In the wake of the pandemic which has highlighted the importance of carrying out community development hand-in hand with World Heritage conservation, the resilience of the WHV organizations in mobilizing efforts and actions towards World Heritage and continuing the engagement of youth and communities is invaluable.
What is the WHV Initiative?
The WHV Initiative was launched in 2008 to encourage young people to undertake concrete actions and to play an active role in the protection, preservation, and promotion of World Heritage sites. It consists of action camps organized by youth organizations or institutions in cooperation with multiple stakeholders and partners, who work together for the state of conservation of World Heritage sites. The initiative mobilizes national and international volunteers through hands-on and awareness-raising activities for the conservation of our common cultural and natural heritage. In the framework of the UNESCO World Heritage Education Programme, the Initiative was launched in collaboration with the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS).
Join the Campaign!
To empower the Commitment to World Heritage, the World Heritage Centre has invited all youth organizations, NGOs, institutions, and public authorities that wish to involve young people in World Heritage preservation through the implementation of action camps at World Heritage sites in 2022. Participation in WHV is voluntary.
