Culture, Heritage and Youth Nexus in Yemen
UNESCO and the EU are pleased to invite you to Culture, Heritage and Youth Nexus in Yemen, an awarenessraising event organized within the framework of the project Cash for Work: Promoting Livelihood Opportunities for Urban Youth in Yemen, funded by the European Union and implemented by UNESCO.
The ongoing conflict in Yemen has been heavily affecting the country’s rich and diverse cultural heritage. At the same time, the conflict exacerbates the existing socio-economic issues faced by many young Yemenis, leaving them in a state of extreme vulnerability.
Cash for Work: Promoting Livelihoods Opportunities for Urban Youth in Yemen creates income opportunities for young people by providing jobs in the cultural sector in connection with urban rehabilitation and cultural programming in four historic cities (Sana’a, Shibam, Zabid and Aden).
Through a photo exhibition, a virtual reality corner and traditional music performance, you will discover the Yemeni cultural heritage and youth engagement in cultural heritage rehabilitation. It will be a moment of sharing preliminary results, lessons learnt and good practices and laying the way forward to the protection and promotion of Yemen’s unique cultural heritage.
