Jérôme Sabatier, France.
"Visiting a Unesco World Heritage site is more than just simple tourism. It's a journey toward the discovery of cultures, history and nature. It's the opportunity to explore places that have contributed to the construction our history and our humanity, and that protect this heritage even today. It's the experience of being enriched by the collective universal memory that helps us understand the world around us.

The sites on the World Heritage of Humanity list all have one thing in common: their universal nature. They teach us that the world – since antiquity – has been fashioned by often commercial crossroads encouraging cultural, scientific and religious fusions. They teach us that openness to others and exchange are indeed sources of prosperity for all societies.

To travel to the heart of these World Heritage sites is to choose to embark on an ethnological, sociological, historical, architectural, cultural or religious voyage ... or all this at once! I represent a tourism based on tolerance among civilizations and on respect for future generations.

Let's protect our fragile universal heritage. And let's pass it on to our children."
