Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site Management Authority Tourism Information Sessions


The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site Management Authority will be holding two Tourism Information Sessions which are free of charge and open to the public. Both sessions will be chaired by Mags Pillay, Programme Director of The Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site (COHWHS)

  • The first session will take place at Ekudeni from 17h00-19h00 on 31 January 2018.
  • The second session will take place at Sterkfontein from 10h00-12h00 on 03 February 2018.

COHWHS Public meetings form part of the stakeholder engagement plan for the COHWHS. The meetings provide an opportunity for the Management Authority (MA) to interact with stakeholders in the area, and to share information on ongoing projects and future plans. The meetings include inputs by the local municipal officials. The invitation to attend the meeting is also often extended to the local media so that they can further report on these plans. Without these meetings, the public living in the area would not be aware of the plans for the World Heritage Site. The meetings also fulfill the United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) requirements of managing sites with stakeholders. The M.A also uses these meetings to pick up emerging issues of major concern that the public wishes to raise, towards the better development of the World Heritage Site.
