World Heritage Volunteers

The WHV initiative was launched in 2008 to encourage young people to undertake concrete action and play an active role in the protection, preservation and promotion of World Heritage sites. The initiative consists of action camps organized by youth organizations or institutions in cooperation with multiple stakeholders and partners, which work together for the state of conservation of World Heritage sites.
