There are four steps, as to how you, the public can get involved. 

1. Nominating members for the WJH committee.
2. Nominating sites from the WJHpedia to be selected as an official site. The final decision as to whether or not the site will be approved as an official will be made by the committee members.
3. Nominating WJH official sites for the WJHwatch list. Approval of these sites will be made by the WJH committee.
4. Nominating sites for the UNESCO Heritage Sites Watch. All sites nominated for this are elected from the WJH official sites and approved by the WJH committee.

The committee is responsible for making the final decisions regarding which sites and elements from the WJHpedia are included in the WJH official list. In addition to this the WJH committee like wise makes the final decision as to which of the nominated official sites will appear on the WJHwatch list.
