After a first experience in Aranjuez in March 2017, and another one in Ibiza in March 2019, next 10th to 13th May 2022, we will be celebrating the III Encounter of Young Ambassadors of World Heritage Cities in Évora (Portugal), as a project approved and included in the agreements of the Regional Secretariat of South Europe and Mediterranean Sea of the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC).
With this III Encounter, this project of Young Ambassadors has shown to be a good practice that highlights young people’s awareness of their cultural heritage and values and how they deal with current challenges of our World Heritage Cities, bringing a new perception and perspective of those who are meant to be the future managers, citizens, eventual stakeholders of our cities.
In this occasion, the initiative is aimed to gather young representatives of the participant cities around a common topic: How to Enhance Livability in Historic Cities, which will be the matter of discussion and general topic to be addressed in the next World Congress of the World heritage Cities Organization to be held in Quebec next September 2022.
We really expect our participants, along with the expert support of the technicians of their cities, to show once more, not only what their cities’ heritage values are but also the ability of our Young Ambassadors to work together in the dissemination, communication, preservation and committed acknowledge of our rich cultural and historic heritage.
