World Heritage Watch is an independent non-governmental organization founded in 2015. We promote the preservation of increasingly threatened UNESCO World Heritage sites. We keep watch that the World Heritage is not sacrificed to political compromises and economic interests. We support UNESCO in obtaining complete and accurate information about the situation of World Heritage sites. And we help local people to protect their sites and to derive an adequate benefit from them.
The sites that have been added to the list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage are the most valuable monuments, the most significant historical cities, the most beautiful landscapes and the most breathtaking ecosystems and natural wonders in the world. They are the most important places on the planet to learn about people and nature. It is for that reason that the community of nations has decided to protect them by binding international law. We cannot and must not imagine a world without them.
Die Spendengelder werden eingesetzt, um Reisekosten von Kreshnik Merxhani aus Tirana am World Heritage Watch Forum in Krakau zu finanzieren, der über ein drohendes Straßenbauprojekt durch den historischen Stadtkern von Gjirokastra in Albanien berichtet hat.
