Statement for World Peace

The World Heritage Network expresses its deepest sadness and rejection of the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

We call for human rights and people's lives to be respected and for any type of attack on children, young people, teachers and professionals in the educational, cultural and business fields to be avoided.

We join the UNESCO statement in which it calls for "respect for international humanitarian law, in particular the 1954 Hague Convention for the Protection of Cultural Property in the Event of Armed Conflict and its two Protocols (1954 and 1999) to guarantee the prevention of damage to cultural heritage in all its forms”.

We ask that the right to education, peace and solidarity between peoples be defended. Our thoughts are with the people who are closely affected by this conflict. We hope that the feeling of a shared humanity is present in the international leaders who make the decisions.
