To promote Heritage Education, the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) is organising a Heritage Education workshop on behalf of Shahjahanabad Redevelopment Corporation (SRDC), government of Delhi.


The workshop, which will be free of cost, will be conducted by Navina Jafa, SRDC's heritage consultant.

The board has asked schools to send two teachers-one from social science stream and the other from the natural science stream- for the workshop.

CBSE regional head RJ Khanderao said, "To discuss and develop a range of innovative Heritage Education activities, schools are being asked to participate in these activities. The idea is to make young citizens of the country aware of their roots and their idea of civilization identity. This is a crucial understanding in order to launch and position the youth in evolving and becoming global citizens."

The workshop will be conducted on September 17 from 11 am to 4 pm at the Delhi Secretariat. The last date for registration is September 16. Schools can register by sending an email to

CBSE had also launched a website on the subject of Heritage Education in October 2012 in association with Sahapedia.

CBSE aims at making a gradual development of the subject as a formal link programme for cross-disciplinary study between social and natural sciences.
