Heritage Watch is introducing a new initiative called Heritage for Kids in an effort to stimulate an appreciation of heritage and culture at a young age and to highlight the importance of heritage preservation and education about the past to a new generation of young Cambodians. The Heritage for Kids program will see education packs distributed to schools in Cambodia. These packs will contain a lesson plan that can be used by teachers to highlight the issues of environmental degradation and heritage destruction and the importance of these resources to the country. Along with the lesson plan that takes about a day to work through and involves group planning and discussion, the pack includes copies of the Heritage Watch comic book and Children's book. There will also be a board game that drives home the message that no good comes from looting!
