Awareness campaign invites everyone to help spread the word that the plunder of our shared cultural heritage must stop.
The recent earthquake in Nepal has brought devastating loss to this beautiful country, including the loss of much of its cultural heritage. In a country filled with rich traditions and heritage, we ask you to show your support for the people of Nepal. Light a virtual candle as a symbol of hope, commemoration, and solidarity.

Join us in raising awareness about the pressing need to preserve cultural material and safeguard our global cultural heritage.

Wherever you are,
stand in solidarity with us.

 

Please light a personal virtual candle below, make a statement, and join the list of others around the world who believe that our shared cultural heritage must be protected.
