World Monuments Fund is now accepting nominations for the 2022 World Monuments Watch.
The World Monuments Watch is a global program that seeks to discover, spotlight, and take action on behalf of heritage places facing challenges or presenting outstanding opportunities of direct relevance to our society. Every two-year cycle of the Watch includes 25 heritage places from around the world, selected for their cultural significance, the need or opportunity for urgent or timely action, and the potential for World Monuments Fund to make a meaningful difference.
Through the Watch, WMF collaborates with local partners to design and implement targeted conservation programs—including advocacy, planning, education, and physical interventions in the historic built environment. The ultimate goal of the program since its inception has been to improve human well-being through cultural heritage preservation.
The 2022 cycle of the Watch is taking place amidst circumstances that have revealed the profound interconnectedness of our world. With contemporary global issues in focus, World Monuments Fund is looking for nominations have clear potential to respond to the need to ensure equitable representation for all, and the pressing challenges of climate change and imbalanced tourism.
