Understanding World Heritage

15 – 18 April 2019

Venue: INTACH, New Delhi 


A broad aim of the program is to discuss and develop an in-depth understanding of the concept and the significance of ‘World Heritage’ in the context of World Heritage properties in India.


‘Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration

What makes the concept of World Heritage exceptional is its universal application. World Heritage sites belong to all the peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located’.                                                                                                                                          UNESCO

As part of the programme, the participants will explore some of the key aspects of the World Heritage, WH Convention, Operational Guidelines, the nomination and inscription in the World Heritage list, and the management of World Heritage sites. Through discussions with and inputs from various World Heritage experts, the participants will gain a deeper understanding of the Outstanding Universal Value (OUV) of World Heritage.  They will collectively debate about the threats being posed to it and its future. In order to illustrate this, there will be specially designed field visits to nominated World Heritage Sites in Delhi.
