The Grenada National Museum invites the public to hear a presentation on “The Value of Heritage to Grenada: Developing a National Heritage Management Framework”, by environmental legal specialist Amanda Byer.
This is in recognition of UNESCO’s annual celebration of ‘International Day for Monuments and Sites dedicated to World Heritage’ on 18 April. The presentation will be from 5:15 to 7:00 pm on Thursday 3 April, upstairs the Grenada National Museum on Young Street.
Ms Byer will present an overview of heritage’s value to Grenada’s development, the components necessary for developing a heritage management framework, and the role of World Heritage under the World Heritage Convention.
The aim is to encourage local communities throughout the world to recognise the importance of cultural heritage to their lives, and to promote awareness of its diversity and vulnerability and the efforts required for protection and conservation.
An appreciation of our cultural heritage can enhance our sense of national identity, and the care we show to our heritage sites through maintenance of their beauty and uniqueness can potentially transform them into revenue generating eco-tourism attractions.
