World Monuments Fund is now accepting nominations to the 2018 World Monuments Watch at https://www.wmf.org/nominate.
Every two years since 1996, the World Monuments Watch calls international attention to cultural heritage sites around the world that are at risk from the forces of nature or the impact of social, political, and economic change. The 2018 World Monuments Watch continues this tradition of identifying places with compelling opportunities for positive change. Since its inception, the program has included 790 sites in 135 countries and territories around the world.
Advocacy and Outreach: Every two years, the announcement of the World Monuments Watch reaches a vast audience around the globe. The program raises international awareness through news outlets, social media, and by coordinating with nominators to support your local advocacy efforts. Through these means, the World Monuments Watch seeks to help accomplish policy changes, encourage stakeholder cooperation, and foster a balance between development and preservation.
Community Engagement: World Monuments Fund aims to reconnect people and places and encourage local stewardship through Watch Day, an opportunity for communities to celebrate the importance of Watch sites and build support for heritage conservation. In the 2018 World Monuments Watch cycle, WMF will make available $2,500 to each site in support of your Watch Day activities.
