Let’s explore the Memory of the World with Tia, Jik and PokPok
UNESCO’s Memory of the World Book for Children Let’s Explore the Memory of the World introduces young children to the value of documentary heritage and stimulate their interest in diverse histories and cultures. The Book was printed thanks to the support of Asia Culture Center and Asia Culture Institute in Republic of Korea.
UNESCO's Memory of the World programme was created with the aim to preserve and provide access to world’s documentary heritage. The MoW Children’s Book highlights important themes embedded in documentary heritage such as languages, religions, geography, gender equality, cross-cultural understanding and human rights, and comprises a visually rich sequence of collections from the Asia-Pacific region together with carefully compiled information relating to the programme. The three main characters depicted in the narrative make discoveries and gradually collect their stories as part of their exploration driven by a quest for wisdom, knowledge and peace. The last section includes creative exercises to encourage young readers in collecting and archiving documentary heritage to safeguard their memories and create their stories.
We hope you will enjoy discovering and welcome your suggestions of school libraries or other relevant institutions which would be interested in receiving a copy.
