Cultural Heritage Public Awareness Programs

Special programs currently designed in cooperation with interns from the Koç University Anatolian Civilizations and Cultural Heritage Management Program, local NGOs and schools aim at raising public awareness for the protection of the cultural heritage in Zeugma. The new Zeugma Museum would be the ideal venue for cultural heritage awareness programs, providing schools with educational services and thereby reaching out to the younger generations. The ultimate goal is to make the new generations in this economically disadvantaged and underdeveloped region recognize the value of the cultural heritage in Zeugma and the implications of its preservation on their own future.
