| New publication
29 January. ICCROM and the Ministry of Culture of Colombia are pleased to announce a new publication in Spanish available for free download: Introduciendo a los Jóvenes en la Protección del Patrimonio Cultural y los Centros Históricos. Una guía práctica para maestros en Colombia [Introducing Young People to Heritage Site Management and Protection: A Practical Guide for Secondary School Teachers in Colombia].
The manual is aimed at introducing heritage education into school curricula and is based on the book with the same title developed by ICCROM and the ATHAR programme.
This Spanish edition aims to provide tools for Latin American teachers to assist them when teaching pupils about the protection of cultural heritage. The manual also seeks to strength ties between cultural heritage professionals in order to improve their capacity for the protection of cultural heritage.
Moreover, through taking children as its focus, this material serves to strengthen the cultural identity of a future generation of adults in Latin America and the Caribbean.
