First Project of The World Heritage Network School's Members: The World Heritage in Ukraine

By Lourdes Ballesteros, co-founder of The World Heritage Network


One of the pillars of the World Heritage Network are schools, and among its objectives are the promotion of peace, respect between peoples and the empowerment of people to defend, through these values, the World Heritage.


In February 2022, the World Heritage Network expressed in a statement its deepest sadness and rejection of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. We called for respect for human rights and people's lives and we also called for ensuring the prevention of damage to the World Heritage in all its forms. But we wanted to go one step further.

We called for respect for human rights and people's lives

Therefore, in the first half of 2022, the Network proposed to the school's members to develop a joint project to work on the World Heritage in Ukraine. We now present the publication that compiles the projects developed by the schools of the World Heritage Network in favor of people and the World Heritage sites in Ukraine.

During the compilation work we felt that in schools, colleges and vocational education and training institutions, the proposed goals were achieved: knowledge, appreciation and dissemination of the World Heritage in danger in Ukraine.

In every project there is a message of PEACE and solidarity for the Ukrainian people

Furthermore, we were touched when we read the works because in all of them there is a clear and powerful message, a message of PEACE and solidarity for the Ukrainian people.

For this reason we would like to thank the Network school's members that participated and promoted a sense of common humanity in their institutions. Let's hope that this senseless war will end soon, so that we can live in a World where the life and treasures of humanity are respected.
