“The Power of Culture: Supporting Community-Based Management and Sustainable Tourism at World Heritage Sites in Malaysia and Southeast Asia” is a regional effort in the implementation of the UNESCO World Heritage and Sustainable Tourism (WH+ST) Programme, and is initiated by the UNESCO Office in Jakarta. A series of workshops were conducted under the framework and guided by the UNESCO Sustainable Tourism Toolkit. The introductory workshop was held in May 2015 in George Town, followed by an initiation workshop in November 2015 in Melaka, and the recently concluded specialisation workshop in George Town.
A total of 40 participants from a diverse range of profiles took part in the two-day specialisation workshop. From tourist guides and museum and tourism managers to government officers and hotel operators from George Town and Melaka, all participants contributed their thoughts and ideas toward the development of sustainable tourism strategies for both cities. The outcomes from the series of discussions held are presented in the attachment below.
George Town World Heritage Incorporated and UNESCO Office in Jakarta would like to invite you to offer your feedback on the outcomes of the specialisation workshop. Feedback obtained will be consolidated and presented at the upcoming concluding workshop which will be held in Melaka.
We thank you ahead for your time and effort, and we hope that your constructive feedback will contribute towards the sustainable tourism development of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Melaka and George Town – Historic Cities of the Straits of Malacca.
