via Philippine Star, 22 October 2023: The Nayong Pilipino Foundation (NPF) has teamed up with Ateneo de Zamboanga University (AdZU) to hold a unique Research Summit focusing on cultural heritage education. The summit, managed through the NPF’s Research Institute, will delve into public policies on natural and cultural heritage, sustainable tourism, tourism governance, and cultural education among other related fields.
The third edition of the Nayong Pilipino Research Summit, with theme “Cultural Heritage Education for Lifelong Learning”, seeks to bring awareness about the state of cultural education in the Philippines and allow participants from various sectors to advocate cultural heritage education for lifelong learning.
According to UNESCO, charting the valuable contribution of cultural heritage education “is the key to overcoming global challenges and to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.”
The summit, made possible through a Memorandum of Understanding signed by the NPF and AdZU last October 10 to develop research cooperation and capacity building between the two institutions, will be held on Oct. 25 to 27, 2023.
