Ammon News - Her Royal Highness Princess Dana Firas, ICoMOS Jordan President and UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for Cultural Heritage, on Wednesday discussed with German Jordanian University (GJU) President Prof. Ala’aldeen Al-Halhouli, potential future cooperation.

This shared effort will focus, especially on the upcoming symposium on Modern Heritage in the Arab world to be held jointly by GJU's School of Architecture and Built Environment (SABE) and ICoMOS in the coming months, according to a GJU statement.

During the meeting, attended by Dean of SABE, Dr. Maram Tawil, and Dr. Rami Daher, a heritage conservation expert, the ICoMOS's role was highlighted in preserving Jordan's cultural heritage, as well as SABE's programs in guiding students to pick projects that serve national history.

The future symposium will bring together Arab and foreign scholars and researchers in modern Arab heritage, in a bid cast light on modern heritage as a major project for cultural change in the region and mechanisms to ensure its continuity in the future as a source of inspiration for future generations in the Arab world, the statement added.

Touring the university's facilities, Princess Dana visited Deanship of Innovation, Technology Transfer and Entrepreneurship and listened to a briefing from its Dean, Dr. Nidal Shawara, on its role in spreading GJU's leadership and innovation and embracing student projects.

ICoMOS-Jordan, a national organization, aims to engage professionals and advocates of Jordan's cultural heritage preservation to enhance joint cooperation and improve standards for heritage management and conservation through research and practice.
