World Heritage site managers share videos on how they are coping with the COVID-19 crisis

As the world continues to be in the grip of COVID-19 and people live in quarantine due to lockdown and social distancing measures to flatten the curve, all aspects of normal life are affected, including World Heritage sites.

Watch the video blogs of site managers of UNESCO World Heritage sites from across the world to understand about how they are managing and safeguarding the world’s priceless cultural heritage. Each video talks about the measures they are taking to secure the sites and how public can learn more about the site without actually visiting the site amid the lockdown closure.

To watch the videos, log on to UNESCO.
