How can young people be inspired to preserve their ancient heritage? Launched in 2003 in response to a worrying escalation in looting of archaeological sites in Cambodia, the non-profit NGO Heritage Watch has developed a simple, yet effective response. In 2015, it launched its Heritage for Kids programme in the community around the temple of Banteay Chhmar, a place where looting was so bad that one night an 8m section of temple wall was stolen. Through the new pilot project, they are making it easy for teachers to integrate heritage preservation and care for the environment into the school curriculum. They have developed education tools including lesson plans, a comic book and other training materials, supported by site visits to temples and museums. Following a successful pilot programme in Banteay Chhmar, the group is now working with the Siem Reap regional government to roll the programme out to the wider region and across Cambodia, because while the programmes are locally specific and tailored to educate and inspire the communities about what is close to them, the template is easily replicable and adaptable across Cambodia and even further afield.
