UNESCO World Heritage Day


On the "UNESCO Welterbetag" (UNESCO World Heritage Day) on 7 June 2020, the German World Heritage Sites, including the Wadden Sea World Heritage, invite Germany to explore and experiment on the initiative of the German UNESCO Commission and the UNESCO World Heritage Sites Association.

Virtual walks allow you to explore places of human heritage that are currently inaccessible or difficult to access. Interviews with local world heritage experts give personal insights into the daily challenges of conservation and mediation work. Children can get creative with the world heritage with the help of coloring pages, handicraft instructions and explanatory videos.

Further, the photo campaign #WelterbeVerbindet gives interested parties the opportunity to help shape the UNESCO World Heritage Day themselves. From 7 June 2020, all photos submitted will be presented in a digital exhibition.
