EPLO welcomes and strongly supports UNESCO's decision for Odessa

The EPLO -as one of strong supporters of the concept- welcomes the World Heritage Committee's decision to inscribe the Historic Centre of Odessa (Ukraine) on the World Heritage List. This decision recognizes the outstanding universal value of the site and the duty of all humanity to protect it. The EPLO through its Circular Economy and Climate Change Institute has put a lot of emphasis on promoting  the legitimate request of Ukraine and the historic city of Odessa  to be proclaimed as a World Heritage Site, and is very happy that this request has been succesfully addressed. 

EPLO, as an International Organization since July 2022 promoted this legitimate request of Ukraine and of the city of Odessa, standing by it, and offering to provide any support that was needed towards this end.

The EPLO had initiated its activities in the area through an office established there.
