We Are Site Managers International Symposium aims to promote international awareness and appreciation of Site Managers as front liners in the implementation of the 1972 World Heritage Convention, by identifying and defining the roles, commitments and contributions of Site Managers for the UNESCO World Heritage System. Through the symposium, we also hope to connect key stakeholders thus establishing a stronger working relationship among the World Heritage community.
