41st session of the Committee, Krakow, Poland


Date: 2-12 July, 2017
Location: Krakow, Poland

The Republic of Poland is honoured to host the 41st session of the World Heritage Committee in 2017, and is looking forward to welcoming all the delegates and participants in Krakow, one of the oldest cities in Poland, whose old town was among the first 12 sites inscribed on the World Heritage List. Bearing in mind both the underlying idea and core values expressed in the World Heritage Convention and the crucial importance of development for our future, the organizers seek to make common responsibility a hallmark of the event. Participants are therefore encouraged to adopt and experience a sustainable approach to the organization of the Committee session, not only regarding their own travel arrangements, but also the logistical set-up or service providers.
