Background and objectives
In 2012, the World Heritage Centre developed an online Information System on the state of conservation of World Heritage properties. Its use has nearly reached 1.000.000 pageviews today. There is a need for up-to-date printed material, in both French and English, with a strong visual identity, to ensure its promotion within Heritage professionals, academics, students, NGOs, governmental agencies, etc. and explain its purpose and main features (advanced search, statistics, threats, charts). See tool at A 4-page brochure was designed in 2013, but needs a new design and more up-to-date content. We will be in constant contact and provide all necessary links and texts in both languages (French and English). The task should be completed in a reasonable time but our deadline is flexible. UNESCO will own the rights of the product but due credit will be awarded to the volunteer. Applicants are encouraged to attach CVs with samples of their work.

Since 1972, the World Heritage Convention aims at the protection of the world's natural and cultural heritage of Outstanding Universal Value. With 193 States Parties, it is one of the most universal international convention. The Information System brings all data regarding the state of conservation of properties inscribed on the World Heritage List on one single webpage and allows instant access to over 3.300 reports. It is essential to have printed material available for distribution to effectively promote this unique tool and encourage all stakeholders of the World Heritage Convention as well as researchers, journalists, etc. to use it as a source information and Best Practice examples. It will also help in improving the awareness of the Heritage community at large on the threats affecting natural and cultural World Heritage properties and on how to best mitigate them by providing instant access to over 40 years of statutory documentation, best practices, as well as up-to-date statistics and charts. It will contribute towards the implementation of SDGs 11.4, 13, 14 and 15. Note that to reach the widest public as possible, the material has to be designed in 2 languages, En&Fr.
