ICOMOS is a non-governmental international organisation dedicated to the conservation of the world's monuments and sites.
ICOMOS joined activist NGOs and individuals calling for bold action from governments on sustainable development issues including climate, inequality and freedom of expression, during the 2019 review of the UN Sustainable Development Goals at the High-Level Political Forum that took place between July 9-18 in New York.
On the initiative of its President, Professor Toshiyuki Kono, ICOMOS is seeking Expressions of Interest from cultural heritage professionals worldwide in order to expand and diversify its international team of World Heritage Advisors for the evaluation of cultural and mixed property nominations to the World Heritage List.
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.
