We strongly believe in the preservation of our historical knowledge.
Without documented history, George Town will remain flat with fewer and fewer people peering in to experienced the rich history behind its walls. GTWHI therefore encourages research and conducts skills training for individuals who are interested in heritage issues.
Out Education and Outreach programmes aim to educate and create awareness among the youth, adults and relevant parties on conservation and preservation of the World Heritage site. By using a multi-faceted approach to education (e.g. talks, site visits, workshops, living heritage experiences), we hope to raise awareness about the OUVs and inspire others to value George Town the way we do. We are also actively building out Resource Centre as a repository of archival documents, and library of the heritage and history of George Town.
