In 1972, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization adopted the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage. The aim of the Convention was to protect cultural and natural heritage of outstanding universal value to humanity as a whole. China ratified the Convention in 1985. Then between 1987 and 2017, China successfully submitted 52 items for inclusion on the World Heritage List, which included 36 items of cultural heritage and 4 items of mixed cultural and natural heritage.
The "Photo Exhibition Celebrating Thirty Years of China's World Cultural Heritage" uses textual and photographic materials to illustrate selected items of cultural heritage and mixed cultural and natural heritage. All are welcome to visit the Exhibition to be held at the Civic Education Resource Centre.
Exhibition Date: 4 July 2019 to 30 September 2019
