This kit was developed in Palau as a pilot project, ultimately contributing to the development of the Learning with Intangible Heritage for a Sustainable Future: Guidelines for Educators in the Asia-Pacific Region. The guidelines aim to enable teachers to incorporate local elements of intangible cultural heritage (ICH) and principles of Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) into teaching and learning in schools. While the pilot project reflects the country’s context and needs, it can be used as a source of inspiration for similar activities in other places. In addition to introductory modules on ICH and ESD, the Pakistan resource kit is divided into two sections. The first contains modules for introducing five ICH elements in schools in Lahore and Islamabad, as well as additional modules for schools in Peshawar. The second section consists of fifty-five lesson plans developed by the participating schools, and is again organized by city.
