    Maldives initially submitted sites for the World Heritage List in 1984

  • 6. Epilogue
    Schools need to incorporate heritage as part of their curriculum.
    UNESCO clubs or heritage clubs in school need to form the core of awareness about world heritage and the responsibilities posed as part of this convention.
    Students need to be more actively involved in processes like conservations, preparation of management planes, heritage studies etc..
  • 7. World heritage is about accepting heritage as being important and universally significant and this need to start from the core country.
    More exposure to the career facilities in relation to heritage management and programs to foster this interest amongst school students and school leavers.
    Consider students as an integral part in the decision making process related to managing and conserving heritage.
