Interpretation and Presentation of World Heritage

UNESCO (United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization) was established in 1945, following World War II, to contribute to world peace and human development

UNESCO is contributing to international cooperation and solidarity by continuing its activities in education, science, culture, and information. UNESCO emphasizes the importance of cultural understanding in building the defense of peace in the minds of men as well as intellectual and moral solidarity, which can be achieved by education. 



To protect heritage sites of outstanding universal value to humanity, international cooperation in various fields, including technology, resources, and research were required

By adopting the 「Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage」 in 1972, UNESCO is continuing its activities for the protection of World Heritage sites together with State Parties. The Convention, to protect the world's heritage sites of Outstanding Universal Value, is recognized as the most active international convention thus far and sets the standard for heritage management and protection practices.
