Initiatives

World Heritage cities’ responses to the COVID-19 pandemic

The COVID-19 epidemic is urging all cities to provide immediate responses to a global crisis that threatens not only the health of the population, but the economy and infrastructure of our territories.

World Heritage Cities are no exception and the OWHC wants to help share first-hand experiences on the different ways you are facing the situation.

Let’s use the OWHC network to share without delay all the initiatives and measures that have been implemented by our members.
