UNESCO Asia Pacific Awards for Cultural Heritage Conservation

Grand / Award @UNESCO posted 1 year ago

Opportunity Description

UNESCO accepts proposals for UNESCO’s Cultural Heritage Conservation Awards 2020 for Asia-Pacific. Uninitiated in the next edition of the UNESCO Agenda is the “Sonder Recognition for Sustainable Development” and an un-updated set of criteria, which recognize in greater measure the role of the cultural heritage and the contribution of it to sustainable development.

Those who are interested to renovate and protect structures, places, and properties of historic and heritage value in the region are therefore recognized with UNESCO‘s Asia-Pacific Preservation Awards. They also convince other landowners, either individually or by entering into public-private partnerships, to start conservation projects in their neighborhoods.

Since 2000, 249 winners from 22 countries have been awarded special prizes for their comprehensive knowledge of places, significant achievements, and remarkable contributions to cultural heritage conservation.
