Milagros Flores, ICOMOS: “A world heritage site generates national identity, a community. It supports the intangible cultural elements of that monument. And if we lose those monuments a whole chain of elements that are reflected in that community will be affected."   

"It is not only stone or mud that is helping to prevent it from disappearing, the intangible aspect of that effect on the community is also being prevented.”

“Climate change is a thing that scares many people, but there is hope. There are things that people can do to mitigate in their daily lives.”  

“It is about creating awareness, about being alert. To understand that this is the moment for each one to do their part, so that everyone puts their grain of sand in this great effort.”

“We still have to take care of it, not just for ourselves, but for those who come and investigate to find out who they were, who we were. There is so much we can learn to avoid the mistakes our society currently makes.”
