Workshop on Protection of Natural and Cultural Heritage

The General Director for Culture and Craft Promotion, Lorenzo Álvaro, began the workshop by presenting its aims to understand the history of World Heritage, highlighting the need for Equatorial Guinea to be on the list.

The workshop featured a presentation by the Coordinator of the UNESCO Cultural Antenna in Malabo, Ellen Lekka, on the “Convention of World Heritage and the nomination processes”.

During the event, there was also a round table, at which each ministry and institution contributed, based on experience in relation to the implementation of the World Heritage Convention.

Officials mentioned several places that could be added to the prestigious list: la Caldera de Luba, el Monte Alen, la Iglesia de Batete.

During the workshop, various officials from the ministries also identified the need to create a protection policy for these places and raise awareness among the population.
