You can become a member of the German NGO, World Heritage Watch e.V. through recommendation by a member and subsequent adoption by decision of the board. Members can be only physical persons. There is no membership fee but we expect regular donations from our members.
Members of the international World Heritage Watch Network can be local groups, UNESCO Clubs, academic and informal initiatives which are based in or near World Heritage Sites; national and international NGOs working for World Heritage sites; indigenous groups and committed individuals.
Independence is our top priority. Officials of state or international bodies who participate in decision-making about World Heritage properties can not be members of World Heritage Watch.
The Board of World Heritage Watch consists of five persons. These are currently:
- Stephan Dömpke, Chairman
- Silvan Rehfeld, Vice-Chair
- Dr. Maritta von Bieberstein Koch-Weser, Vice-Chair
- Uli F. Gräbener, Treasurer
- Prof. Dr. Rolf Kreibich, Secretary
