The ICOMOS Board, membership and International Secretariat are greatly saddened by the death of Professor Henry Cleere on 24 August at the age of 92.
Henry’s association with ICOMOS dates back to 1975, when he joined the UK National Committee. At the Rome General Assembly in 1981 he was elected a member of the international ICOMOS Executive Committee, on which he served for nine years. During that period he played a major role in the creation of the ICOMOS International Committee on Archaeological Heritage Management (ICAHM) in 1984 and later as a prime mover in the drafting of the 1990 ICOMOS Charter on Archaeological Heritage Management.
For eleven years (1992 to 2002) he worked as World Heritage Coordinator at the ICOMOS International Secretariat in Paris.
This year, the ICOMOS Annual General Assembly and Advisory Committee will take place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 4-8 December 2018, on the generous invitation of ICOMOS Argentina.

The urgent need for increased ambition by the cultural heritage sector on climate change is uniting culture, heritage, indigenous, sustainability and community organisations from around the world at the Climate Heritage Mobilization. ICOMOS is proud to be supporting this effort as an Endorsing Organisation. The Mobilization event, scheduled for 12 September in San Francisco (USA), is an official affiliated event of the Global Climate Action Summit organised under the auspices of the California Office of Historic Preservation (an ICOMOS member).
ICOMOS had the pleasure of participating in the celebration of the 70th anniversary of IUCN’s founding in Fontainebleau, France on 30 and 31 August. The conference entitled “The future of landscapes: a new relationship for people and nature” focused on the future of cultural landscapes, including the places that have been created through agricultural, pastoralist and sacred use.
