The World Heritage Institute of Training and Research for the Asia and the Pacific Region under the auspices of UNESCO (WHITRAP) launched the 2023 Global Awards for World Heritage Education Innovative Cases on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the World Heritage Convention.

Global Awards for World Heritage Education Innovative Cases(AWHEIC)was initiated by WHITRAP in 2022, aiming to select innovative World Heritage Education cases with contemporary exemplary significance around the world, providing an international exchange platform for global heritage education practitioners to communicate and share.

The 2022 AWHEIC was a great success, with nearly 100 cases received from around the world. 30 winning cases (10 Stars of Outstanding, 10 Stars of Discovery, and 10 Stars of the Future) were selected and awarded with certificates and other opportunities. In order to better present and share the winning cases globally, we have elaborately produced a promotional film and brochure for the winning cases, and organized international sharing sessions, which have been highly appreciated by all parties.
