On Saturday, 3 December 2016, the Abu Dhabi Declaration was adopted at the close of the International Conference on Safeguarding Cultural Heritage in Conflict Areas (2-3 December 2016). ICOMOS was represented at the conference by its Director General Marie-Laure Lavenir and by Samir Abdulac, Chairman of ICOMOS Working Group for the safeguarding of cultural heritage in Syria and Iraq (and neighbouring countries).
Have you ever thought about the value of your heritage?
Whether it is represented by places, objects, customs, values and creative expressions, our heritage defines us.
Unfortunately, for Syrians and many other populations, the loss of their heritage is a reality. Protecting culture today is essential for building peace tomorrow.
