watch out here the new seven wonders along with other 14 nominated landmarks. 

http://www.swissinfo.org/eng/multimedia/index.html?siteSect=15002&sid=8002908&gallery=y

The campaign to name the new wonders was launched by Swiss adventurer Bernard Weber in 1999. Almost 200 nominations came in and the list was narrowed to 21 at the beginning of 2006. 
For inclusion in the list, the new wonders had to be man-made, completed by 2000 and in an "acceptable" state of preservation.

 

Each continent had to be represented by at least one wonder, but there could not be more than one per country. The ancient wonders were mainly concentrated in the Mediterranean area.

 

"They should become symbols of unity in the modern world, just as the original seven wonders were symbols of the ancient world," Weber told swissinfo in an earlier interview.

 

Some countries, such as Brazil and Jordan, had enthusiastically endorsed their country's candidates.

Objections

But the new wonders campaign has not been universally recognised. The United Nations' cultural organisation, Unesco, has distanced itself from the initiative. It has its own World Heritage list.

"There is no comparison between Mr Weber's mediatised campaign and the scientific and educational work resulting from the inscription of sites on Unesco's World Heritage List," said Unesco in a statement released on July 6.

"The list of the "Seven New Wonders of the World" will be the result of a private undertaking, reflecting only the opinions of those with access to the INTERNET and not the entire world. This initiative cannot, in any significant and sustainable manner, contribute to the preservation of sites elected by this public," it added.


*the world is already divided into two part, one those have INTERNET access, other who dont have.
Archaeologists have also raised concerns over the possible effects of increased tourism to the new seven wonders.
