Coinciding with the 2013 Session of the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) Series on the Management and Conservation of World Heritage Sites, the Institute invites citizens of Hiroshima to participate in this, the 74th UNITAR Public Session.
Article VI of the World Heritage Convention emphasizes that it is the duty of the international community as a whole to cooperate with regard to the protection of world heritage. The Operational Guidelines of the Convention indicate that the Outstanding Universal Value of a property, what makes it truly World Heritage, transcends national boundaries, and is part of our common inheritance, something we can leave to future generations.
In a world that continues to be plagued by conflict, what role can World Heritage play in stimulating and maintaining international cooperation and dialogue?
Hear from representatives of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) and the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) regarding this fascinating topic.
