RWYC - Reconnect with your Culture

In coop­er­a­tion between RWYC and the Min­istry of Edu­ca­tion & Cul­ture of the Repub­lic of Indone­sia presents the 1st Inter­na­tion­al RWYC Con­fer­ence 2021, Recon­nect­ing with Your Cul­ture in The World” — We are Ambas­sadors of Culture. 


Ana­lyz­ing the real­i­ties of dif­fer­ent coun­tries of the world, from the Far East to the far West, there is a need to acti­vate a new human­ism” and for this rea­son, it is nec­es­sary that Cul­ture enters ful­ly into the whole ideation of the new and inno­va­tion on which it is impor­tant from now on to invest. To do all this, how­ev­er, we must start from the younger gen­er­a­tions and then plant seeds to obtain good fruits and there­fore a very good har­vest in the near future.

In con­junc­tion with Nation­al Cul­tur­al Week (Pekan Kebu­dayaan Nasion­al 2021) in Indone­sia, it is the right moment to hold an Inter­na­tion­al Con­fer­ence address­ing Cul­ture. We would be pre­sent­ing the inter­na­tion­al ped­a­gog­i­cal project Recon­nect­ing with your Cul­ture” pro­mot­ed by the EdA Inter­na­tion­al Research Cen­ter Esem­pi di Architet­tura and UNESCO Uni­ver­si­ty and Her­itage. The project pur­sues the Qual­i­ty edu­ca­tion” objec­tives of the UN 2030 Agen­da. The ped­a­gog­i­cal method Recon­nect­ing with your cul­ture” brings chil­dren and young peo­ple clos­er to the themes of cul­ture and civic for­ma­tion because only by know­ing and enhanc­ing their respec­tive cul­tur­al her­itages is it pos­si­ble to appre­ci­ate the present and build the future well. For these rea­sons, it is very impor­tant to hold this Inter­na­tion­al Con­fer­ence address­ing Cul­ture in Nation­al Cul­tur­al Week (PKN 2021).
