Reflecting on Our Journey: Preserving Cultural Heritage through Sustainable Development

A Global Perspective on Cultural Heritage and Sustainable Development

The intricate relationship between cultural heritage and sustainable development is a global concern, transcending national boundaries. This project is dedicated to exploring how youth workers worldwide can contribute to preserving cultural heritage while promoting sustainable development practices. It aims to provide a comprehensive understanding of how cultural heritage, an invaluable asset for any society, can be a driving force for sustainable and inclusive growth.

Project Goals

  • Promote Understanding of Cultural Heritage: Deepen youth workers’ appreciation and understanding of diverse cultural heritages across the globe.
  • Link Heritage to Sustainable Practices: Explore innovative ways in which cultural heritage can be integrated with sustainable development goals.
  • Empowerment Through Education: Empower youth workers with the knowledge and skills necessary to advocate for and implement sustainable heritage management.

The Journey Begins

The working language of the project was English, ensuring accessibility and inclusiveness for participants from various backgrounds. The initial days of the project were marked by the sharing of insights and experiences from the NGOs represented by the participants. This sharing served to establish networks and facilitate mutual learning.

Creative Endeavors and Strategic Thinking

A particularly memorable day involved learning how to “sell ideas” and present them effectively. Participants were tasked with creating their own touristic agency, combining fun, strategic thinking, and cultural heritage. This exercise not only fostered creativity but also emphasized the importance of strategic planning in promoting cultural heritage.
