The purpose is to provide greater knowledge of UNESCO as part of the United Nations system, and of its mission
in designating and protecting World Heritage, as well as of the outstanding participation of Canada therein. The
1972 Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage is one of the most
successful of UNESCO’s, with 186 State Parties. The speakers will treat the registration process in the World
Heritage List, the challenges of conservation following registration, as well as the role of governments and civil
society in achieving the purposes of the Convention. One should grasp the innovation and boldness of these
programs as some of the outstanding international efforts for peace building in the world through education,
science, culture and communication. Since the international principles and practices influence national and local
heritage protection, this meeting’s impact will be particularly relevant for professionals and students in
environment and design, as well as for national and local heritage groups, and for the greater public.
One of the 890 sites of World Heritage :

Urbino, Italy : The small hill town of Urbino, in the Marche, experienced a great
cultural flowering in the 15th century, attracting artists and scholars from
all over Italy and beyond, and influencing cultural developments elsewhere in Europe.
