World Heritage Day is celebrated on 18 April every year to promote, preserve and recognize the world heritage and the efforts made by the working organizations. The theme for the year 2020 is: Shared Cultures, Shared Heritage, Shared Responsibility which is decided by the International Council on Monuments and Sites.

We all know that Ancient buildings and monuments are very important for us and for the world. Therefore, World Heritage Day is an effort of the communities in the world to preserve our buildings. This day maintain the culture and make people think about its paramount importance.

The ICOMOS, established on the principles of the 1964 International Charter on the Conservation and Restoration of Monuments and Sites (also known as the Venice Charter), suggested celebrating World Heritage Day on April 18, 1982, and a resolution pertinent to this was passed in 1983 at 22nd session of the UNESCO.

In the time of global calamity, where the whole world is fighting with the COVID-19 pandemic, the theme plays a vital role. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the organization has decided to celebrate World Heritage Day through the internet. The theme focuses on global unity. It also states that the heritage is connected with landscapes, places, etc. so it should be valued by every community.

Not only this, but several activities like virtual conferences, online lectures, press releases, and social media campaigns is held at various places. People can even post their information, photographs, and videos on shared heritage & cultures from their country. Moreover, hashtags can be used to share the message about the importance of heritage with friends, relatives and family as much as possible.
