The Watch seeks to promote heritage stewardship through three areas of activity:
Advocacy and Outreach
The announcement of the Watch is a major media event reaching a vast audience around the globe. World Monuments Fund works to raise international awareness through news outlets, social media, its website, and by coordinating with nominators to support your local advocacy efforts. Through these means, the Watch seeks to help accomplish policy changes, encourage stakeholder cooperation, and foster a balance between development and preservation.
World Monuments Fund aims to reconnect people and places and encourage local stewardship through “Watch Day, ” an opportunity for communities to celebrate the importance of Watch sites and build support for heritage conservation. In the 2018 World Monuments Watch cycle, WMF will make available $2, 500 to each site in support of your Watch Day activities.
Project Collaboration and Support
World Monuments Fund has allocated more than $100 million to projects at World Monuments Watch sites since 1996, and more than $245 million has been allocated by third parties. The attention drawn to the selected sites provides a vital tool that you can use to leverage project support from a variety of sources, including national, regional, and municipal governments, foundations, corporations, other international organizations, and private donors.
