For everyone who cares about the conservation and understanding of our built heritage

Our mandate is the world’s cultural heritage

ICOMOS-UK (the UK National Committee of the International Council on Monuments and Sites) is an independent (non-governmental) organisation working across the UK to advise, encourage better understanding and promote dialogue on all aspects of the conservation and management of our historic environment.

ICOMOS has been established for over forty years. With your help we can make sure its work continues for the next forty years

What it would mean for us

Help us work for higher standards

Most of our work is undertaken by volunteers who serve on our specialist committees in their spare time. Our small secretariat takes care of the day-to-day running of ICOMOS-UK which includes responding to enquiries, organising and raising funds for events and conferences, servicing the specialist committees, and providing an essential advisory service to many who work in the historic environment and related sectors, particularly to those involved with World Heritage Sites.

By becoming a member you would be supporting the world-wide mission of ICOMOS in the UK, and internationally. All members are welcome to apply to join a specialist committee and support the aims of ICOMOS-UK by offering ideas for new projects and initiatives.
