The Maritime Greenwich World Heritage Site is proud to host the 2012 UNESCO Youth Summit on 27th, 28th and 29th June 2012. The event promises to be a unique conference with young people coming from across the country.

Greenwich will be hosting many sporting events for the 2012 Olympics including the equestrian events in the Royal Park and attendees will be able to soak up the atmosphere of London as it prepares for ‘the greatest show on Earth.’ Don’t miss your chance to take part!

This will be an incredible opportunity to welcome people from across the world and to celebrate the unique beauty and importance of the World Heritage Site together with the collections and diverse cultural industries based here. 2012 also marks the 40th anniversary of the World Heritage Site convention: the Convention Concerning the Protection of the World Cultural and Natural Heritage, adopted by the UNESCO General Conference on 16 November 1972.
