Following a participatory approach the Network of the Austrian World Heritage Sites encourages and supports the networking of the stakeholders – nine World Heritage Site managers, representatives of the responsible ministries, representatives of local authorities, representatives of the Austrian Monuments Office, representatives of the Austrian Commission for UNSCO, monitoring experts of ICOMOS Austria and other relevant local stakeholders. It ensures the competences and professional working on heritage. Once a year the Austrian World Heritage stakeholders meet for the annual meeting at one World Heritage Site to allow insights into the local management practice. The aims are to share information, exchange experiences on management issues and to learn from good-practice examples. During the year the Network is frequently used among the members. Furthermore, the nine Site Managers meet regularly with the responsible Ministry and the Commission for UNESCO in order to work on common issues and challenges with the aim to optimize the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
