Task Description

It’s quite simple, go get a selfie for your profile on gounesco.com!

But wait, there’s more – 3 steps more to be exact.

  1. You have to take a selfie while holding a print (or show on your tablet/phone) of this image – download. Make sure you write your name in the blank space. Upload it to your gounesco.com profile and on social media (fb/instagram/twitter) with the hash tag #gounescoselfie.
  2. Take the selfie at a heritage location in your current city. You are free to choose the heritage location; it need not be a world heritage site either.
  3. Come back, write an article about this heritage location (why is it a heritage location, its significance to the city’s history, how did you get there, your experience on the visit, etc) and submit it on gounesco.com. You can submit more pictures too!
