Workshop on Heritage Education for Teachers

September 1, 2013, 12:00 am

The primary aim of the Heritage Education is to encourage awareness of the genius of the natural and cultural heritage that surrounds us in our daily lives and engage children in a direct experience of heritage, preferably outside the classroom wherever it is possible and appropriate. To promote the Heritage Education, we need to encourage schools and teachers and involve them in heritage related activities.
