ICOMOS and Giving Tuesday
GivingTuesday was created in 2012 as a simple idea: a day that encourages people to do good. Over the past nine years, this idea has grown into a global movement that inspires hundreds of millions of people to give, collaborate, and celebrate generosity.
Since 2020, ICOMOS has campaigned before and during Giving Tuesday to raise funds for causes close to the organisation's heart, such as projects that celebrate the close link between cultural and natural heritage.
Over the past 3 years, ICOMOS has collected more than €49k to help support meaningful initiatives among its network of 11,000 members.
The 2022 Giving Tuesday donations will help finance the 2024 Culture Nature Prize, and this year's donations will help 4 ICOMOS National Committees in need, whose country's heritage has been - and still is - impacted by traumatic events.
Damaged Republican Palace in Khartoum, Sudan
Damaged Ranikot Fort in Pakistan
How will your donation help safeguard the heritage of these countries?
The funding will finance much needed equipment such as laptops, cameras, drones, GPS...which are used to monitor damaged or threatened cultural heritage sites.
