World Heritage Education Programme for the Young People

The World Heritage Education Programme for the Young People is aimed at increasing young people’s awareness of the preservation of heritage within Indonesia.

The activity will contribute to instilling an appreciation and a sense of identity and belonging to their country. With such self-awareness in place, the young participants will have a stronger basis of the knowledge of their history and cultural heritage preservation.
EF English First Indonesia and UNESCO Office, Jakarta are organizing the World Heritage Education programme for the Young People in Bali with the support from the Ministry of Education and Culture of the Republic of Indonesia, the Provincial Government of Bali and the Tabanan Regency Government. During the 3-day World Heritage Education programme, students from the ages of 8 to 18 attended two introductory workshops that were facilitated by Head of Culture unit of UNESCO Office Jakarta (Masanori Nagaoka) and a lecturer from Udayana University (Wiwik Dharmiasih). From both workshops, students learnt about the importance of becoming involved in heritage conservation on a local level, including the protection of the Subak’s elusive culture and various traditions. Moreover, they also had the opportunity to learn about the philosophy of Tri Hita Karana that promotes a harmonious relationship between the individual and the realms of the spirit (parhyangan), the human world (pawongan), and nature (palemahan). Following the introductory workshops, the students headed to Jatiluwih, where they got the opportunity to witness and experience the Cultural Landscape of Bali Province, Subak system first-hand by harvesting the rice with local farmers. Throughout the harvesting activity, students also got the chance to meet with local people that reside in the area to learn about their heritage and their concerns, as well as the challenges they face.
