Welcome to the World Heritage Youth Ambassadors!

“Working to empower young people through World Heritage to be transformational in their own lives and the world around them”.
The World Heritage Youth Ambassadors is a program that helps young people age 13-25 discover who they are, who they want to be, and be proud to shout out about it. Using the World’s most special places, World Heritage Sites, we work with any young person to develop themselves, connect with their communities, and celebrate their place within the world they live in.

WYHAMS will help young people aged 13-25 to explore World Heritage in a local, UK and Global context. This project will help Young People understand not only the historical context of World Heritage, but the UK context, the processes relating to the management of World Heritage, and how it can make a lasting impact on local communities.

Our Sites

World Heritage Youth Ambassadors Blaenavon


Blaenavon Industrial Landscape was inscribed as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 2000. UNESCO recognised that “The area around Blaenavon bears eloquent and exceptional testimony to the pre-eminence of South Wales as the World’s major producer of iron and coal in the nineteenth century.


UNESCO added The City of Bath as a 'cultural site' to its World Heritage List in 1987. Bath is included because of its Roman Remains, 18th Century Architecture, 18th Century Town Planning, Social Setting, Hot Springs and Landscape Setting.
