ICH & Education

Here, educators will find learning activities and sample lesson plans based on living heritage. We will also share good practice examples of the successful integration of living heritage in formal education. Our Inventory also acts as an important resource. Teachers may use it to ensure accurate and credible information about cultural forms are shared with students.

Integrating living heritage in the formal education system contributes to awareness raising and the overall safeguarding effort. The Government of Belize has acknowledged this by ensuring living heritage learning strands are incorporated in the National Curriculum for Pre, Primary and Secondary Schools, as well as the Belizean Studies Curriculum. You can find out more about these on the Belizean Studies Website.
