Commemoration of World Heritage Day began in 1982, initiated by the International Council on Monuments and Sites (ICOMOS) as a day to glorify heritage to remind the importance of heritage preservation in treating the remains of the past and pass them on to future generations. The theme of the 2016 commemoration is Heritage of Sport where every country commemorated with various activities related to traditional sports and traditional games. Dame Fiona Reynolds, president of INTO, gave a speech titled “Stopping the Countdown to Catastrophe for World Heritage”. On the occasion, Hashim Djojohadikusomo also delivered a speech on the development of conservation activities in Indonesia.
