In 1982, ICOMOS established 18 April as the International Day for Monuments and Sites. UNESCO approved it the following year during its 22nd General Conference. Since then, 18 April has been a day to celebrate and promote cultural heritage, and an opportunity to raise awareness about its diversity, its relevance, how vulnerable it can be and what the needs and benefits of its conservation are. Every year, ICOMOS proposes a theme for the celebrations and activities to be organised by the ICOMOS National and International Scientific Committees and by other organisations that wish to participate. In 2019, the theme is Rural Landscapes – which is linked to the theme of the 2019 ICOMOS Scientific Symposium on Rural heritage to take place in October in Marrakesh, Morocco (see our page about the Symposium and the call for proposals).

Rice terrace fields Luzon Philippines Flickr Jayreel Bacurayo

En 1982, l'ICOMOS a déclaré le 18 avril comme Journée internationale des monuments et des sites. L'UNESCO a approuvé cette création l'année suivante lors de sa 22e Conférence générale. Depuis lors, le 18 avril est une journée de célébration et de promotion du patrimoine culturel et une occasion de sensibiliser le public à sa diversité, à sa pertinence, à sa vulnérabilité, et aux besoins et aux avantages de sa conservation. Chaque année, l’ICOMOS propose un thème central pour les célébrations et les activités organisées par les Comités nationaux et scientifiques de l’ICOMOS, ainsi que par d’autres organisations souhaitant également célébrer et sensibiliser le public au thème proposé. En 2019, le thème est Paysages ruraux – un thème lié à celui Symposium scientifique 2019 de l’ICOMOS sur le patrimoine rural qui se déroulera en octobre à Marrakech, au Maroc (voir notre page internet sur le Symposium et l’appel à propositions).

Lors de la 18e Assemblée générale (Florence, Italie, novembre 2014), l'ICOMOS, par le biais du Symposium Scientifique « Patrimoine et paysages en tant que valeurs humaines » voulait promouvoir un large débat destiné à améliorer le dialogue interculturel en plaçant l'être humain au centre du débat culturel, dont les valeurs patrimoniales et paysagères constituent une synthèse commune.

Following presentations by 170 speakers and debates, the General Assembly adopted the "The Florence Declaration on Heritage and Landscapes as Human Values regarding the values of Cultural Heritage in building a peaceful and democratic society".
