Capacity Building is a strategic goal of the World Heritage Convention and one of the main functions of WHIPIC.

The Capacity Building program is operated in two types: International and National,

Operating and Developing WHIPIC Secondary Education Program



Education and Networking Office will operate the Campus-type Joint Curriculum for the First Semester of 2023 in cooperation with the Sejong City Office of Education. The Campus-type Joint Curriculum is the representative curriculum of the Sejong City Office of Education, where students design their curriculum suitable for their careers. Starting on March 24th, our office will hold seven classes for high school students in Sejong City at WHIPIC Larchiveum until May 26th. The curriculum includes various topics such as UNESCO heritage, foreign cultural assets, museums, and heritage career development. After the operation of this project, a roundtable will also be held to discuss the current status and development of secondary education programs in the heritage field. These projects will be an excellent foundation for promoting youth awareness of UNESCO heritage and building partnerships with local heritage education institutions.
