Cultural Heritage and Educational Initiatives

Hemlata Talesra (Author) Vishwas Mehta (Author) Indu Kothari (Author)
Synopsis Education and culture appear to be two different domains but they are inextricably interlined. The influence of one on another is so deep that the growth of each of these domains cannot be considered in isolation. In the history of mankind different cultures have evolved and many of them have vanished. Each culture is the net result of a continuous flow of environmental, sociological, geographical, and many other factors influencing the existence and functioning of the society. A culture which is open to new dimensions, ideas, lifestyles, value systems emerging in the contemporary world can survive for a long period. In fact, readiness to gradually change, develop and accommodate is the breath of a culture. At present, mankind is facing many problems. It is our prime duty to make this world a better world than what we received from our ancestors in the context of enrichment of any culture. Keeping this in mind an effort has been made to bring various thoughts on the issue in the form of a book. This book includes papers presented at the International Conference on “Cultural heritage & Education Initiative” organised by Rajasthan Council of educational Administration and Management (RCEAM) affiliated to Commonwealth Council of Educational Administration and Management (CCEAM) and West Zone Cultural Centre (WZCC), and the “International Conference Cultural Heritage and Eco-Tourism”, organised by RCEAM and Commonwealth of Learning, Gujarat State.
