HOORC seminar: cultural heritage and people

Two presentations at a HOORC seminar today featured ongoing research by HOORC cultural tourism specialist Dr Susan Keitumetse and PhD candidate Phemo Kgomotso. Dr Keitumetse spoke about linking cultural and intangible heritage to tourism while Ms Kgomotso discussed how implementation of Ramsar and government policies are affecting the livelihoods of people in the Okavango Delta, with special reference to the village of Seronga.

HOORC seminars take place throughout the year and are open to the public. Contact Dr Philippa Huntsman-Mapila to be added to the e-mail notification list.
