World Heritage Volunteers 2011

Launched within the framework of the World Heritage Education Programme, the World Heritage Volunteers projects mobilize and involve young people and youth organizations in World Heritage promotion and preservation.

The project is and jointly coordinated by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Coordinating Committee for International Voluntary Service. World Heritage Volunteer projects integrate awareness raising campaigns with hands-on skills training on conservation and preservation techniques. It aims to provide opportunities and tools to sensitize about World Heritage; strengthening the sense of ownership of the local population of their local heritage.

The projects explore opportunities for a dynamic dialogue between the heritage & education experts and the volunteers towards developing synergies and partnerships.

From 2008 to 2010, 50 projects have been carried out in 18 countries with the involvement of 663 young volunteers.

For the WH Volunteers 2011, 28 youth action projects will be carried out in 17 countries from March to October 2011 .
