The 2016 theme for the ICOMOS International Day for Monuments and Sites celebrated on 18 April is: The Heritage of Sport
"Sport is part of every man and woman's heritage and its absence can never be compensated for" - Pierre de Coubertin
As foreshadowed at last year’s Annual General Assembly in Fukuoka, the ICOMOS Board is intending to call an Extraordinary General Assembly in conjunction with the forthcoming Annual General Assembly taking place in Istanbul in October 2016, for the purpose of making some minor amendments to the ICOMOS Statutes. The formal notice of meeting will be sent in June.
