Welcome to an emerging community of practice.

Residents & visitors 

- hosts & guests

World Heritage are natural and cultural wonders recognised for their 'Outstanding Universal Value' to humanity. This means that wether you reside in a community hosting World Heritage or travel to visit a World Heritage site, you are considered a 'World Heritage stakeholder'. 

But what does it mean to be a 'World Heritage stakeholder'? Is it a right or responsibility? In fact - it is both. It is a shared responsibility to protect the heritage as well as an open invitation to be part of decision making processes that directly or indirectly will affect you and your community. But in reality, there are few opportunities for individual, civil society stakeholders to be heard, even less to take part in strategy development and decision making processes. 

World Heritage Catalysis invites you to join other stakeholders gathering around World Heritage to co-create a better tomorrow and a culture of stewardship. Through World Heritage Catalysis you have a seat at the table, with access to tools allowing you to become a catalyst for positive change in your community. Find out if "your" site has a dedicated space in the community platform and join or ask for the permission to join. 

Through development of the World Heritage Exchange Trading System (WHETS) the aspiration is to empower residents, travellers and visitors alike. Designed upon the recognition that everyone has something to offer and share, WHETS will a.o. provide a market place, means of exchange and voting mechanism for personal empowerment while directly or indirectly contributing to the protection of World Heritage.
