World Heritage Day – Let’s tell everybody!



April 18th is International Day for Monuments and Sites, also known popularly as ‘World Heritage Day’.
To celebrate this day, we are planning a social media campaign to bring heritage and world heritage into focus and we need you to make this work. The idea is to highlight world heritage sites between 17th and 19th April 2014 and make this trend across the world.
All you have to do is this – post the following message on your facebook or twitter along with your photo from a world heritage site.

“In celebration of World Heritage Day on 18th April, I am posting my pic(s) from a World Heritage Site that I have been to. Please help raise the awareness of heritage sites protection by copy pasting this status on your wall along with your picture(s) at the world heritage site. Let’s encourage the World to appreciate these legacies of mankind, at least for one day in a year! #gounesco #worldheritage”

If you want to check if you have been to a world heritage site, you can see the list here – link.

Will you help us in this effort? Please do!

Idea suggested by Asanti, the GoUNESCO Campus Ambassador at BTU, Cottbus, Germany.

P.S – The GoUNESCO Finale 2014 also is planned along this occasion, please join in person in Hyderabad or online if you are outside – link.
