Would you like to know more about the World Heritage Convention and how it came to be? An international team of researchers is conducting interviews with pioneers of World Heritage to capture memories of important moments in the history of the World Heritage Convention.
Launched in 2006 under the leadership of the Canada Research Chair on Built Heritage at the University of Montreal, and developed in collaboration with UNESCO Archives, this initiative is part of the UNESCO History project that celebrated the 60th anniversary of the creation of UNESCO.
The Oral Archives project records the precious accounts of people closely associated with the creation and implementation of the Convention. Listen to the interviews here: https://whc.unesco.org/en/oralarchives
