Monthly trekking and camping events: 2004 – 2011
Tajwal conducted regular field events including trekking and village-to-village camping. Our field events were planned, executed and evaluated in collaboration with the destination community.
Our objective was to spread knowledge about our country and its diverse culture.
Destinations were chosen to highlight Syria’s off-the-beaten track cultural heritage resources. All monthly events were all planned and led in conjunction with members of these communities and provided an opportunity to acquaint Syrians and non-Syrians with the local heritage and culture. The program met with significant success at the onset of 2011 and, as a result, we have a large data archive of the different areas visited.
Due to the tragic events currently unfolding in Syria, the Tajwal project has been limited and therefore postponed until a suitable time post-conflict.
