Official Launch of the Diversity Kit, the Creativity Game in the Dominican Republic
UNESCO’s Regional Office for Culture in Latin America and the Caribbean, in collaboration with the Dominican National Commission for UNESCO and the Spanish Cultural Centre, officially launched from 22 to 26 November 2010 the Diversity Kit, an educational and playful tool for youth aged 12 to 16.
The kit aims to make the UNESCO Convention on the Protection and Promotion of the Diversity of Cultural Expressions more approachable to youth. During the launch, the playful and dynamic component of this tool was highlighted. The Creativity Game fosters, in a collaborative context, awareness of the value of diversity and helps young people become aware of their own creative capacities.
Along with the launch of the Diversities Kit, a trainer training workshop was organized, involving teachers and public managers from all over the country. This activity is a clear step in the dissemination and implementation of the Kit throughout the Dominican education network.
