The International Day for Monuments and Sites – or World Heritage Day – is held on April 18th every year around the world with different types of activities, including visits to monuments and heritage sites, conferences, seminars, and lectures, among other activities.

Proposed by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) on April 18th 1982 and approved by UNESCO in 1983, it aims to raise public awareness about the diversity and vulnerability of the world’s built monuments and heritage sites and the efforts required to protect and conserve them.

The theme for this year’s International Day for Monuments and Sites is “Heritage for Generations”.
