WHAT IS MAKE HERITAGE FUN!

The #makeheritagefun series of events is a distributed social media campaign occurring simultaneously at cities around the world to draw attention to heritage. This initiative by GoUNESCO is yet another way for everyone to engage with heritage. Experiences from across the world will be collated and amplified through social media using the hashtag #makeheritagefun.

Heritage is for all – every one of us owns our heritage.
