The Jean-Paul-L’Allier Prize for Heritage
Every two (2) years, the Jean-Paul-L’Allier Prize for Heritage is awarded by the Organization of World Heritage Cities (OWHC) to one of its member cities in good standing.
The award highlights a project, a program or a policy related to the conservation, enhancement or good management of a living urban ensemble or property within an urban context thanks, in part, to the commitment of its local communities. The urban ensemble or property must be located within the territory of an OWHC member city inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
With this prize, the OWHC seeks to reward exemplary urban cultural heritage conservation and its capacity for resilience; community engagement through the involvement of local stakeholders; concrete outcomes of the project on local communities; and the learning experience upon which the international community might draw.
