‘Tá idirleathadh leathan chultúir, agus oideachais an chine dhaonna i gcomhair ceartais, saoirse agus síocháin riachtanach do dhínit an duine agus mar dhualgas sácráilte ag gach tír meon comhoibrithe agus cúraim a chomhlíonadh’

Bunreacht EOECNA (UNESCO) 1945

Oidhreacht Dhomhanda

Eascraíonn an smaoineamh d’Oidhreacht Dhomhanda ó phrionsabail an cheartais, saoirse agus síocháin, a spreag gá le hoidhreacht chultúrtha agus nádúrtha atá ar chaighdeán Sár-Luach Uilíoch a chaomhnú go domhanda ionas go mbainfeadh glúnta an lae inniu agus na glúnta amach romhainn tairbhe astu.

Cuireadh Coinbhinsiún maidir le Cosaint Oidhreachta Chultúrtha agus Nádúrtha an Domhain ar bun ag EOECNA i 1972 agus daingníodh é in Éirinn i 1991. Is é an cuspóir a bhí leis ná tuiscint, síocháin agus comhoibriú idir tíortha a chothú ionas go gcaomhnófaí oidhreacht ar fud na cruinne. Den chéad uair riamh, aithníodh ag coinbhinsiún idirnáisiúnta go gcuimsíonn oidhreacht cultúr agus mar thoradh uirthi go mbíonn daoine ag idirghníomhú leis an dúlra.

Tá cuid de na samplaí is tábhachtaí d’oidhreacht chultúrtha agus nádúrtha ar domhan ar LIOsta Oidhreachta Domhanda EOECNA.
