Engage was invited by the Deputy-Director of UNESCO to submit a report to the 2017 World Heritage Watch NGO Forum to be held in Krakow which will be at the same time as the World Heritage Committee meets to decide upon the future of Liverpool UNESCO World Heritage Site.
We chose to make public our submission on World Heritage Day as a contribution to our efforts to getting Liverpool removed from the In-Danger list of WHS. This complements our autumn seminar series which will take as its theme Liverpool UNESCO World Heritage Site – a Status Worth Fighting For?
