Heritage is something that is passed on from earlier generations and what we pass on to future generations. Cultural heritage, as well as natural heritage, is an irreplaceable source of knowledge, pleasure and inspiration for all peoples; and is our most important point of reference with regard to who we are, and where we come from.
In the Nordic region there are more than 40 sites listed as

Many years of networking has shown that competence and capacity building amongst World Heritage sites can best be achieved by meeting each other to exchange experiences. An annual conference is hold each year to make sure of this.
