The World Heritage Day
Every year, on the 18th of April, the world celebrates "International Day for Monuments and Sites", commonly knows as the World Heritage Day. On this Day, awareness campaigns are organized to educate public about the diversity of cultural heritage and the efforts that are required to protect and conserve it.
Each year has a new theme and the theme for 2012, which also coincides with the 40th anniversary of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention, is “World Heritage and Sustainable Development: the Role of Local Communities”.
We, the students of the Heritage Management Programme of the Institute for Tourism Studies, Macao, are proud to take part in the worldwide celebration by orgnasing an event entitled 'A Tale of a Street: Community Heritage of Rua de Tomás da Rosa'.
