This year, to mark 18 April, ICOMOS encourages its National Committees, its International
Scientific Committees and members to organize activities to promote the theme “Cultural Landscapes
and Monuments of Nature”, to take this theme as an opportunity to raise public’s awareness
concerning this heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it, as well as
to draw attention to its vulnerability.
If you are organizing meetings, workshops, or other activities to mark the International Day for
Monuments and Sites on 18th April, please send any information or press clippings to Ms. Vivian
Ramirez [firstname.lastname@example.org] at the International Secretariat. We will be compiling a
calendar of planned events online.
The International Secretariat can also help you by circulating announcements of your activities
related to the Day, ahead of the 18th April to all the other ICOMOS Committees – just forward the
written announcement to us by e-mail.
Information on 18 April is being published in the coming ICOMOS News 2/2007 and we look forward to
mentioning a selection of National Committee activities in the mid-year.
Finally, do not hesitate to send in any suggestions or comments you may have on the principle of
this day, the chosen theme or any innovative ways to celebrate our shared world heritage.
