Awareness & Education

Raising awareness about the Cultural Heritage of Soqotra is not only important on Soqotra itself, but also globally at a time when all heritage – both cultural and natural – is coming under increasing threat on the islands.

The Soqotra Heritage Project team have ensured that the knowledge they have gained was shared with many people during the first phase of the project. This included visits to different cultural sites, workshops for school children, and the installation of information panels at key sites. The importance of cultural heritage will continue to be circulated throughout Soqotra via a series of “comic strips” designed to engage people with short messages and the prompt to try and find out more.
