Eternal Heritage in the Middle East

A collaborative project from Observatory Patrimoine d’Orient and UNESCO features JOEJOURNEYS content of historic Jerash.

An awareness-raising campaign promoting heritage preservation among young people on social media platforms through a number of videos.

It aims at raising awareness of the value of heritage in civil society, develop a stronger sense of belonging among young people with respect to their heritage, disseminate knowledge of the region’s historical sites, which are too often unknown, and enable approaching heritage from an aesthetic point of view.

Produced with the support of UNESCO under 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.

This project includes the production of a collective publication on emblematic sites of the Middle Eastern region (Lebanon, Jordan, Palestine, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Yemen).
