THE WORLD HERITAGE FOR HUMANITY
The convention concerning the protection of the world natural and cultural heritage was adopted in 1972 between the states and the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO). Its duty is to ensure the identification, protection, conservation, presentation and transmission to future generations of the natural and cultural heritage. The heritage registered in the list represents an invaluable and irreplaceable treasure for the Humanity. The main objective of the heritage conservation is to highlight and to preserve the human cultural diversity and its environment. The purpose of the action in favor of heritage preservation is to promote peace through the conservation of cultural diversities and dialogue between cultures beyond differences. In 2015, France counted 41 "cultural or natural sites" among the registered sites in the World Heritage List.
