World Monuments Watch Magazine
Every two years, the World Monuments Watch issues a call to action for treasured cultural heritage sites around the globe. Since 1996, when the Watch was founded with support from American Express, the program has recognized 790 sites facing daunting threats or compelling opportunities for protection, conservation, and engagement.
The 2018 Watch, announced on October 16, 2017, includes 25 sites representing a wide variety of challenges ranging from human conflict and urbanization to natural disaster and climate change. From ancient sites to works of the 20th century, from rural settings to bustling urban centers, the 2018 Watch sites present timely opportunities for conservation, community engagement, and sustainable development.
