Call for participation: World Heritage Youth Forum 2016 At the Crossroads of Multi-Layered Heritage


International fora are good opportunities to network and to raise awareness. This year, the "UNESCO World Heritage Youth Forum" will convene in Istanbul. The question of heritage is naturally central to diasporas. The conference's host country, Turkey, is a country where heritage is particularly rich and abundant, and one in which is has been most destroyed.

As part of the 40th session of the World Heritage Committee and in the framework of the UNESCO World Heritage Education Programme, the Turkish National Commission for UNESCO and the Istanbul Site Management Directorate are organizing the World Heritage Youth Forum 2016: “At the Crossroads of Multi-Layered Heritage” from 29 June to 12 July 2016.
