World Heritage Education Project

UNESCO's Young People's World Heritage Education Project was launched in 1994 to raise awareness among students and teachers around the globe about World Heritage conservation. 

The project is co-ordinated by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the Associated Schools Project Network (ASPnet) Co-ordination Unit and funded by the Norwegian Agency for Development Co-operation (NORAD) with previous support from the Rhône Poulenc Foundation, France.


Through the integration of World Heritage education into secondary school curricula, the project aims to involve young people in World Heritage conservation and to create a new synergy amongst teachers, curriculum developers, heritage experts and other relevant people from local to global levels.

This is based on the belief that only by instilling a deep sense of responsibility towards our common heritage in tomorrow's decision-makers can the planet's rich cultural and natural diversity endure.
