Global Conversation on World Heritage and Culture of Peace 0 Reply

World Heritage and Culture of Peace represent universal values on which UNESCO has a special focus.

Importance of the preservation of common heritage of human kind is expressed in armed conflicts and in areas threatened by extremists. For more information on world heritage in danger visit the link.

Spreading the Culture of Peace is an important factor in preservation of cultural sites which are a symbol of the identity of one nation and also a part of the common heritage of whole human kind. Special area of activity of UNESCO’s Culture of Peace programme is Heritage and contemporary creativity as tools for building peace through dialogue.

Importance of learning about World Heritage Sites for better understanding and affirmation of different aspects of peace is outlined in a chapter of the manual World Heritage in Young Hands.
