Relying almost exclusively on the efforts of young volunteers and local communities, the World Heritage Volunteers projects have brought together in 2010 more than double the number of individuals, organizations and countries than in the previous years. Led by the example of youth and community commitment, many institutional and private partners are now joining the volunteers in becoming role models in World Heritage education. They show us with their voluntary work that if World Heritage sites belong to all peoples of the world, safeguarding this “unique and irreplaceable Heritage” is also a shared challenge, and young people have already taken on this responsibility.
Field actions and educational activities carried out by the World Heritage Volunteers projects in 2010 represented a turning point in the way local and international young people accept, with the privilege of living and experiencing the beauty of World Heritage sites, the responsibility of taking care of their preservation and valorization.
