UNESCO's World Heritage Centre and HISTORY® have partnered to increase awareness about heritage preservation worldwide and to promote education about World Heritage.
New pedagogical approaches were developed to mobilize young people to participate actively in the promotion of World Heritage sites, about the history and traditions of their own and other cultures, and about ecology and the importance of protecting biodiversity.
HISTORY also takes advantage of its broad educational network of teachers to disseminate World Heritage content throughpromotional editorials, newsletters, and ads, for example in the Idea Book for Educators, which has approximately 300,000 individual subscribers.
HISTORY® is the leading destination for factual entertainment, including award-winning original series and specials that connect viewers with history in an informative, immersive and entertaining manner across multiple platforms. The network features a roster of hits, all-original programming slate, including scripted event programming. The HISTORY® website is the leading online resource for all things history.
