World Heritage is defined as the shared wealth of human kind. World Heritage is a wonderful reminder of our rich past. It is our duty to protect the Heritage and offer it to the coming generatuins. Heritage sites need to be protected and preserved. They are valuable assets of human civilization. The seeds of World Heritage Day were sown on April 18, 1982. The international council for monuments and sites ( ICOMOS ) had organized a symposium in African country Tunisia. The calls were made for celebration of an "International Day for Monuments and Sites" all over the world. The idea picked up the pace and the committee approved the suggestion. The proposal then moved to UNESCO general conference where a resolution was passed in November 1983.
