The 39th session of the World Heritage Committee will be held from 28 June to 8 July 2015 in Bonn (Germany). This issue will be dedicated to the country’s thirty-nine World Heritage sites, from Aachen Cathedral to the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen. The sites are rich and varied, including cultural touchstones such as Classical Weimar and Berlin’s Museumsinsel (Museum Island), natural sites such as the Wadden Sea, and transnational properties such as the Prehistoric Pile dwellings around the Alps, a site shared with five other countries.
This issue will also present many examples of excellent international cooperation on a variety of projects, supported or implemented by German institutions, as well as activities with non-governmental organizations, and capacity-building through educational networks, universities and training centres.
There will also be a message from UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova and from the German Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs Frank-Walter Steinmeier, as well as an interview with Maria Böhmer, Chair of the World Heritage Committee.
