Edinburgh World Heritage - Project Portfolio


Project Portfolio

The work of Edinburgh World Heritage covers three main areas of activity, conservation, learning and planning.

EWH administers a Conservation Funding Programme, awarding grants to property owners within the World Heritage Site to carry out repairs. EWH also undertakes its own conservation projects, identifying areas of need and fundraising to enhance the historic cityscape.

Interpretation and education projects are also a core part of EWH’s work, helping to raise awareness and understanding of the World Heritage Site. Interpretation aims to explain the key historic values of the site, and encourage visitors to explore the city. Education looks to provide resources for teachers and students, to enable them to use the World Heritage Site in their studies.

Through the World Heritage Site Management Plan, EWH acts an expert advisor to the City of Edinburgh Council. This involves monitoring the state of conservation of the site, conducting research and advising on policies and strategies to help manage the historic city centre.
