Production of a manual for teachers to incorporate Global Citizenship Education values into Place-based Learning project for the Asia Pacific Centre of Education for International Understanding (APCEIU).

It provides case studies of lessons designed to teach cultural diversity through tangible heritage such as human settlements and religious buildings located in the World Heritage Site of Penang and Melaka in Malaysia. The guidebook also provides lesson plans that help students appreciate cultural resources by studying intangible heritage such as cultural foods and cultural clothing. The educational materials will be useful in organizing a class which can foster Global Citizenship among learners and will encourage them to actively participate in action to preserve World Heritage in their local community.
