Что такое Инициатива Волонтеры Всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО

(World Heritage Volunteers)?

Инициатива WHV была начата в 2008 году, чтобы побудить молодых людей предпринимать конкретные действия и играть активную роль в защите, сохранении и популяризации объектов всемирного наследия. Он состоит из лагерей действий, организованных молодежными организациями или учреждениями в сотрудничестве с многочисленными заинтересованными сторонами и партнерами, которые все вместе работают над сохранением объектов всемирного наследия.

Эта инициатива мобилизует национальных и международных добровольцев посредством практических и информационных мероприятий для сохранения нашего общего культурного и природного наследия.

В рамках Программы ЮНЕСКО по образованию в области всемирного наследия инициативу возглавляет Центр всемирного наследия ЮНЕСКО  в сотрудничестве с Координационным комитетом международной добровольной службы

WHV- ‘Lesser Known World Heritage Monuments near Saint Petersburg’ -2019

Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments

Dates: 14.07-27.07/2019

 Age: 18-30

Type: Env/Cult

Vols: 8

Language: English/Russian

Project objectives: The project aims to promote the historical significance of the less known components of the World Heritage site, which is the historic centre of Saint Petersburg and related groups of monuments. Its main objective is to raise awareness among volunteers and locals about the site’s conservation, as well as contributing to its sustainable management.

Host organization: NGO “Mir tesen”- an associated member of the Coordinating Committee of International Volunteer Center (UNESCO).

Project activities: During the project volunteers will work on different sites, including 18-19th century estates that belonged to Russian royalty, famous statesmen, military leaders and artists, and the parks surrounding them. Participants will be in charge of their maintenance: do gardening work, clean the roads and terraces, sweep the ground and improve paths for visitors around the monuments.

What makes this project stand out is that it is relocating, which means every day there will be a new exciting site to visit, so over the course of two weeks volunteers will get to see different sides of Russian culture, learn about history, architectural styles and traditions of different parts of Russian society, from nobility to peasants, from artists to state officials. Among the sites are: the former royal estate Pavlovsk, the historic 16th century village Gostilitsy, visited by Empress Elizabeth for royal hunting, the worldfamous artist’s Repin’s family manor located on the shore of Gulf of Finland and many more unique places. As most sites are located in the suburbs, participants will have an opportunity to experience both the grand atmosphere of imperial Saint Petersburg and the quiet life of provincial estates.

Volunteers will also create a proposal for a touristic map route through the World Heritage sites, which will be available in their mother tongues. It is a unique action camp for volunteers who want to get in touch with the spirit of Russian history in a diverse multicultural environment.

Work: Volunteers will be working 4-5 hours per day 5 days a week with the support of local specialists. Here is a link to a video from the last year’s project, you can take a look at how great it was and imagine yourself working in a multicultural team on these amazing sites this year!
