    FSJ Kultur

    FSJ Kultur

    FSJ is an abbreviation for Freiwilliges Soziales Jahr (Voluntary Social Year). Since 2017, the Bamberg World Heritage Office participates in the voluntary service and hosts volunteers for 12 months each. The volunteers become part of the World Heritage team. They familiarize themselves with the working routines of a municipal administration and contribute to work of the office. In extra courses, volunteers acquire new skills and knowledge for their work and future career.

    Management Plan

    The World Heritage Management Plan serves as a central planning instrument for the protection, use, maintenance and sustainable development of the World Heritage Site. For each World Heritage site, the preparation of a Management Plan is one of its mandatory tasks, in accordance with the Guidelines for the Implementation of the UNESCO World Heritage Convention.
    The Management Plan contains the central guidelines, instruments and organisational structures that are important for the conservation of the UNESCO World Heritage Site "Old Town of Bamberg" and its Outstanding Universal Value. It defines the associated tasks and the framework for the sustainable development of the World Heritage Site.
