The UNESCO World Heritage Convention

The Great Wall of China, the Pyramids of Giza, the Taj Mahal, the archaeological site of Olympia in Greece, Ayers Rock or the Grand Canyon – these human cultural achievements and natural phenomena are unique and worth protecting. Their disappearance would be an irreplaceable loss for humanity as a whole. Their protection, therefore, does not lie in the hands of a single nation, but is the responsibility of the international community. This is the aim of the UNESCO Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage (World Heritage Convention) of 1972.
