World Heritage: Heritage is our legacy from the past, what we live with today, and what we pass on to future generations. Our cultural and natural heritage are both irreplaceable sources of life and inspiration.
UNESCO World Heritage sites are places as unique and diverse as the Pyramids of Egypt, the Yellow Stone National Park in U.S.A and Ha Long Bay in Vietnam. World Heritage sites belong to all the peoples of the world, irrespective of the territory on which they are located.
This section lists my visits to some of our world’s natural and man-made wonders, now protect under UNESCO, preserved and care for generations to come. Please click on any photo to learn more about that place.
UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage: Cultural heritage does not end at monuments and collections of objects. It also includes traditions or living expressions inherited from our ancestors and passed on to our descendants, such as oral traditions, performing arts, social practices, rituals, festive events, and the knowledge and skills to produce traditional crafts.
The section below lists Intangible Cultural Heritages I witnessed and experienced during my travels around the world. Please click on any photo to learn more about it.
UNESCO Man and the Biosphere (MAB) Programme aims to establish a scientific basis for the improvement of relationships between people and their environments. MAB Biosphere Reserves are areas of terrestrial, marine and coastal ecosystems promoting solutions to reconcile the conservation of biodiversity with its sustainable use. Biosphere reserves harmonize conservation of biological and cultural diversity, and economic and social development, through partnerships between people and nature.
