We want to promote peace through heritage preservation. We recognize together with UNESCO that “Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations”, and strongly believe that to build peace it needs to preserve and value Heritage.
This is something that violent extremist groups know well. In fact, heritage sites are often in their sights and become targets of destruction.
Our goal is to sensitize society about the importance of preserving and defending heritage as a means for promoting culture and enhancing mutual understanding, thus, to build durable peace. To reach this goal, in November 2015 we have launched a social media campaign to spread knowledge about World Heritage Sites endangered by violent extremist groups, and call for an individual standing up against such violent actions, because: who destroys the past, has no future!
