The Mayors&Heritage interviews allow us to discuss with mayors of cities belonging to the OWHC. These interviews make it possible to learn a little more about the political career of each mayor, their role in the protection of heritage and the aspirations of the cities.

A privileged look into the heritage

In the form of conversations, the interviews also offer an excellent opportunity to benefit from a privileged look into the member cities and their heritage. They especially explain the responsibilities that come with being recognized as a World Heritage treasure.
