Since the proclamation of the International Decade for the Rapprochement of Cultures (2013-2022), as well as the achievement of SDG 11.4 on the protection and preservation of the world cultural and natural heritage, one of the priority tasks of UNESCO is the protection and popularization of World Heritage Sites. With this purpose a global education and awareness program on Education for Sustainable Development Youth and Heritage was conceived.

Promotion of domestic tourism, popularization of sustainable tourism, the opening of new tourist routes and the spread of knowledge about objects of cultural and historical heritage are the main goals of the project of this program, which will definitely make its own positive adjustments to the development of cities and regions of our country.

The project consists of educational, outreach, research and final practical parts.

By becoming a participant of this grand project, you will learn all about the preparation of tourist routes, learn how to create audio and video guides, deepen your knowledge in the field of cultural and natural heritage of our big country and, of course, make your own contribution to the development of sustainable tourism of Kazakhstan.
