And you thought the Great Barrier Reef was protected!
UNESCO is a United Nations agency for education, science and culture. Its purpose is to protect our World Heritage – the places with “outstanding universal value.” The Great Barrier Reef is one of these places.
The World Heritage Committee was created by UNESCO, and it votes on what becomes World Heritage listed, and what does not.
YouNesco is a new initiative created by WWF to make sure that you, the people of the world, are heard when UNESCO makes big decisions.
It works like this. By voting you become a YouNesco ambassador. Then when UNESCO vote on big decisions, you do too.
We package up your votes and present them to the UNESCO ambassadors before they cast theirs.
They get to hear from people all over the world before they vote. You get a say in what happens to your world, and the decisions that are normally made behind closed doors.
