Helping children discover the rich heritage of port cities: new toolkit launched

A new educational toolkit has been published by the MARE NOSTRUM project, funded by the EU in the framework of the Euromed Heritage IV programme, with the aim of assisting teachers in the planning of activities for school children and raising their awareness to the rich heritage of Mediterranean port cities.
The educational toolkit is now available in three languages: English, French and Arabic, and a series of workshops have been planned in various cities across the Mediterranean.
A number of workshops have already been held on the greek island of Rhodes in November, and another workshop was due to take place in the Lebanese city of Tyre on 4 December. A set of workshops is also due to be organised in the Tunisian city of Carthage on 15 and 16 December, and the Maltese city of Marsaxlokk. The dates of a workshop planned in Syria have not been confimed yet.
MARE NOSTRUM aims at providing a sustainable mechanism for the protection and management of cultural heritage resources in the targeted countries, leading to an awareness of cultural heritage in the public conscience. In order to enhance cultural heritage as part of the sustainable development of Mediterranean cultural heritage, the action will adopt a holistic approach which satisfies economic and social objectives as well as high quality cultural tourism needs.
EuroMed Heritage IV is a €17 million EU-funded programme which contributes to the exchange of experiences on cultural heritage, creates networks and promotes cooperation with the Mediterranean Partner Countries. (ENPI Info Centre)
