In collaboration with the African World Heritage Fund (AWHF), the World Heritage Centre is organizing a workshop in Masvingo (Zimbabwe) from 26-28 April 2018 that will mark a major milestone in the involvement of African educational institutions in the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.
The three-day workshop will bring together key African academics and African World Heritage experts that have expressed interest in the English-speaking African university network to facilitate their contributions to the further development of a regional network.
The highly interactive event will feature information exchanges on existing curricula related to heritage conservation and management and working session on different aspects of World Heritage. The workshop will culminate in an action plan for future activities and the creation of a regional network of educational institutions.
The workshop will be hosted by Great Zimbabwe University (Zimbabwe) as part of the project entitled “Integration of World Heritage Curriculum in African Educational Institutions” financed by UNESCO/Netherlands Funds-in-Trust.
Interested academics are invited to submit their CV (two pages max) along with a short text (300 words max) outlining their institution’s existing curricula and/or research related to heritage. Please send to WH-Africa@unesco.org by 21 March 2018.
