Looking back on 18 April: thank you all!
Three months ago, on 18 April 2019, we celebrated the International Day on Monuments and Sites on the theme of rural landscapes. The richness of rural heritage, but also the challenges of its conservation in a context of climate change and sustainable development, have given rise to many varied events: educational exhibitions, guided tours, hikes, conferences and round tables.... People in 48 countries and members of 33 National Committees played the game and proposed activities: thank you all for this rich and exciting day! Some photo reportages are available below.
All these activities have been widely promoted on social networks. The hashtag #IcomosIDMS2019 appeared in 105 tweets, in 285 Instagram publications: you shared your activities, in words and pictures, reacted to our Instagram stories... We are happy to sense a true community spirit around ICOMOS!
