United Nations Year for Cultural Heritage: Let’s share our treasures
On the occasion of the thirtieth anniversary of the adoption of the World Heritage Convention, the United Nations proclaimed 2002 Year for Cultural Heritage in order to focus international commitment to the cultural heritage cause and attract public awareness, in particular young people. UNESCO, lead agency for its observance, issued a poster created by Beatriz Hervella and Luis Sardá, using a symbol based on the very figures of the year 2002. It conveys the idea of “culture, mirror of humanity” expressed via a calligraphic effect.
