What are they?
To carry out the work of developing and promoting sustainable tourism in localities marginalized from the main tourist flows, The Rozana Association and the Open Network for Mediterranean Sustainable Tourism (see “ONMEST2” in “Trails and Tours”) have designated six Centers of Local Culture (CLC’s) in the West Bank. As always, Rozana’s goal is to create employment and improve the economy and way of life for rural residents in Palestine while simultaneously providing visitors with unique touristic experiences.
Each Center is a cluster of villages or region which has historic, cultural, architectural, or environmental value overlooked and left undeveloped through existing channels. The CLC’s task is to build upon these attractions, creating an “open air museum” in which local and international tourists can interact with local communities and their culture. Each CLC is to assemble, promote and provide comprehensive packages of touristic services. Each will be managed by a committee of representatives drawn from the local communities, artistic groups, and the public and private institutions which will serve as partners in carrying out this work.
At the present time TheRozanaAssociation is developing six Centers of Local Culture, each with a unique history, environment and set of treks, activities and attractions. Each Center, however, will offer the same welcoming hospitality of the Palestinian people who are proud to share their culture, cuisine and traditions.
