WHV 2015: Patrimonito takes a Stand in a Changing Global Environment



Thursday 1st of January 2015 - Thursday 31st of December 2015


This year’s campaign entitled WHV 2015: Patrimonito takes a stand in a changing global environment offers challenging opportunities to young people seeking meaningful involvement in World Heritage preservation and promotion.

The youth action camps are held in the field and in direct relation to a World Heritage site or a property in the country’s Tentative List. Generally two weeks in duration (minimum 10 days), the projects include information sessions on issues related to World Heritage, working with local communities and site and local authorities, workshops and practical hands-on activities providing some basic preventive, preservation and conservation skills. Each action camp accommodates some ten to thirty national and/or international volunteer participants, and often preparatory and follow-up activities with the local communities and the volunteers are also implemented by the organizers to ensure the sustainability of the actions. WHV youth action camps are often organized in a multi-stakeholders cooperation, with local youth organizations, NGOs, schools, universities and public and private institutions working together with site management
