An Arab World Heritage Young Professionals Forum entitled "Empowering youth to build peace through the protection and preservation of heritage" will take place from 2 to 6 December 2019 in Tunis, Tunisia. Its aim is to engage and empower youth in the Arab States region in their critical roles as global citizens towards peacebuilding, through the protection, preservation and promotion of World Heritage.
The Forum will be a space to encourage dialogue and exchange, and support new ways of sharing and working together. As such, it will consist of a mix of workshops, presentations and round tables conducted by experts; group discussion sessions among the participants; as well as site visits and community interactions.
The Forum will adopt an inclusive, multi-disciplinary and participatory approach across youth, heritage, peacebuilding and communications and will be implemented and moderated using interactive approaches to knowledge transmission, through a non-formal education methodology.
The Arab World Heritage Young Professionals Forum is organized by the UNESCO World Heritage Centre, under the World Heritage Education Programme, within the framework of the UNESCO/UNOCT project on the Prevention of Violent Extremism (PVE) through Youth Empowerment in Jordan, Libya, Morocco, and Tunisia, co-funded by Canada. It is organized in collaboration with the Arab League Educational, Cultural and Scientific Organization (ALECSO).
