The UNESCO World Heritage Centre is pleased to announce the selected projects of the World Heritage Volunteers (WHV) 2020 – 2021 Campaign, under the theme of Fostering Youth Commitment towards World Heritage.
WHV 2020-2021 is a joint campaign, a first in the history of the Initiative, as the implementation of the projects under the WHV 2020 campaign was postponed to 2021 due to the COVID-19 global pandemic.
As such, 55 action camp projects will be implemented from February to December 2021 at 55 World Heritage properties and sites on the Tentative Lists, by 49 organizations in 32 countries around the globe.
The WHV 2020-2021 projects will provide empowering and enriching opportunities to young people and enable them to go beyond borders to some of the most outstanding places in the world. National and international volunteers will work together with the local communities to preserve our common cultural and natural heritage, through concrete hands-on and awareness-raising activities.
Volunteering for World Heritage preservation is a unique experience! Come join us in the WHV 2020-2021 Campaign.

Please note that the UNESCO World Heritage Centre and the regional coordinators are not responsible for the selection of individual volunteers. As such, you will need to contact the organizations implementing the chosen projects directly, so that they may be able to provide you with details regarding the application procedure, and other necessary information. The contact details are available in the brief descriptions on the website.
