The UNESCO World Heritage Centre is organizing a capacity-building workshop for team leaders of the World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) Initiative, in the framework of the World Heritage Education Programme, from 12 to 15 March 2019 at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris, France.

This five-day workshop has been designed to help the team leaders of WHV to improve the implementation of action camps. Through a series of training activities and discussions, the workshop will focus on strengthening the team leaders’ capacities and skills, by training them in fundraising, advocacy and communication, and project management. The training workshop aims to engage the participants and their organizations fully in order to maximize the impact and outreach of their projects, as well as reinforcing capacities and equipping them with skills that they can pass on.

The capacity-building workshop is organized as part of the World Heritage Volunteers Initiative, which is led by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre in collaboration with the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service (CCIVS), European Heritage Volunteers and Better World.

This workshop is funded by the Netherlands Funds-in-Trust.
