Today, also known as World Heritage Day, is the International Day for Monuments and Sites! In Sarah’s role as ‘UNESCO Artist for Peace,’ she continues to support of the UNESCO World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism Programme. This programme represents a new approach, where planning for sustainable tourism, heritage management and natural and cultural preservation is valued and protected.
Heritage is the legacy from the past, what is lived with today, and what is passed onto future generations … and cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration. World Heritage sites belong to all the peoples of the world … and Sarah is looking forward to continuing to work with UNESCO to enable historic and cultural preservation at World Heritage sites, and promote sustainable cultural tourism for many years to come!
