World Heritage Day: Current Affairs 2022

The International Day for Monuments and Sites, also known as World Heritage Day, is observed on April 18. The day was first celebrated by United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in 1983. The aim is to promote awareness about the cultural heritage and diversity on the planet.

The theme for World Heritage Day 2022 is “Heritage and Climate“. The organisation has encouraged partners to show activities that highlight how heritage can be a source of knowledge to fight climate change.
