The International Day of Monuments and Sites was established by ICOMOS on 18 April 1982 and was approved by UNESCO the following year. This commemorative event aims to raise the awareness of citizens about the diversity and vulnerability of heritage sites, as well as the efforts involved in the protection and appreciation of such sites.
In 2018, the theme of the International Day of Monuments and Sites is "Cultural Heritage: from generation to generation." The Directorate General of Cultural Heritage (DGPC), in collaboration with ICOMOS Portugal, aims to disseminate this theme in order to foster inter-generational dialogue, as a tool to increase  knowledge, development and diversity.
In order to safeguard cultural heritage it is necessary to strengthen identity-based ties, foster dialogue between tradition and progress, assume the values of memory as levers of the future, stimulate intergenerational transfer of knowledge and reinforce information sharing, raising the awareness of young people, learning from older people, fostering intergenerational communication, learning more, preserving better, and cementing the importance of culture and heritage as a unifying element for communities.
