“Heritage is the cultural legacy which we receive from the past, which we live in the present, and which we will pass on to future generations." UNESCO

With the 1972 Convention concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, UNESCO established that certain places on Earth have "exceptional universal value" and belong to humanity’s common heritage, such as the Serengeti Forest in East Africa, the Pyramids of Egypt, the Great Barrier Reef in Australia and the Baroque cathedrals of Latin America.

Nonetheless, cultural heritage is not limited to monuments and collections of objects. It is also comprised of living expressions inherited from our ancestors, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social manners, rituals, festive events, knowledge, and practices related to nature and the universe, and knowledge and techniques linked to traditional crafts. Intangible cultural heritage or living heritage is an important factor in maintaining cultural diversity.
